 There is a visible flag for groups┬╣. So we could have a /dev/null group
without it being directly user visible.
 However that'll add roughly 874K to comps. (65K compressed), then
yum/etc. has to parse it all out whenever we need group info. and the
"all packagenames need to be in at least one group" doesn't strike me as
a very good rule, anyway.

┬╣ yum-groups-manager --id /dev/null --not-user-visible yum
