  a reasonable suggestion, but the current definition of that group
looks a bit strange on f11 beta:

$ yum groupinfo Virtualization
Loaded plugins: downloadonly, refresh-packagekit
Setting up Group Process

Group: Virtualization
 Description: These packages provide a virtualization environment.
 Mandatory Packages:
   python-virtinst
 Default Packages:
   qemu-system-ppc
   qemu-system-x86
   virt-manager
   virt-viewer
 Optional Packages:
   gnome-applet-vm
   virt-top

  is there some reason that qemu-system-ppc is considered a "Default"
package?  after all, there's a *pile* of qemu-system-<arch> files --
arm, cris, mips, etc.  what's so special about ppc?  just curious.
