My approach with SLED is add packages, but don't replace packages that are provided in SLED. That is the approach which led me to come up with
I managed SLED installations with numerous additional packages installed and have successfully obtained support from SUSE.

Ultimately the only way you can decide whether SLED will meet your needs is to try it and see. Are you aware that you can download a copy of SLED for free? It keeps working forever, you just don't get any updates after 60 days.

FWIW, I just downloaded Komodo-IDE and it launched fine. I have no idea how to actually use it though so all I can say is it launched without errors. It's supplied as a .tar.gz so zypper/YaST isn't involved, you unpack it, run the install script and tell it where to install.
