[CentOS] "core" package groups

One nice thing I have with Debian is the possibility to have a really 
stripped-down install of things. Let's take an example.

I want a cholesterol-free install of GNOME, I 'apt-get install 
gnome-core' which gives me the bare working minimum of GNOME as a 
starting point, and then I install what I really need. The same thing 
applies for KDE, with 'apt-get install kde-core'.

Having such a thing would be great on CentOS. Currently, 'yum 
groupinstall <group>' tends to install many things.

What do you think?
