So the interesting thing about that is - that no, it wont break upstream
compatibility; since the groups that are put in are done by us -
remember that upstream has varients that we dont, and their process and
policy around those varients depends on various non technical factors (
eg. how much money you paid for the subscription that in turn got you
the install media ).
Lets say, its a bit of a grey area - we *could* have that as an option
if people *really* wanted it. I suspect a yum install \* in the %post of
a ks.cfg would achieve about the same result.
