I'm all for it - I wrote a simple script for generating a <group>
section for a comps.xml file - they are intended for use with yum but
since yumgroups.xml and comps.xml are the same file format (well, for
the groups part, the packages part isn't really considered in yum - but
it quietly ignores them so it's the same format :) then it would work
just as well for those.

If anyone is interested in it.
