naively....
fresh installs.... assuming anaconda's current interface
if its got a checkbox by it... its explicit.
So if its a default item in a group and the group is select for
install its explicit
If its an option item that was explicit checked.. its explicit

Or looking at it another way, if the depsolver has to pull it in to
the transaction... its implicit.
Using this naive logic... with fresh installs break in significant
ways as packages are removed?
