I'm not sure they need to be bundled. Especially with 'IT' as a
prefix; code analysis is code analysis; password recovery is
password recovery.

There's also ongoing work on package tagging that may fit better
for more finer grained usages such as these.

My mistake.

Tagging would help with this; as it stands now, 'yum search wireless'
or 'yum search wireless sniffer' would return the packages in your
wireless group.

Sure, but KDE is a much broader use case. I feel that the groups as
you defined them are probably too fine grained.

Moreover, what's the usage case in that you really need all three
tools (which is the default if you install the group you mentioned)?
