    I'd have to cast my vote for having "choose individual packages" back.
There are many times I want a package out of a group, but not the "Default"
packages in that group. In many cases, at least with RH9, the "default"
packages are not even dependancies for a sub-package in the same group. (At
least for the packages that I needed at the time. Can I remember what they
were? No, of course not. ;) )
