Right, its based on duplicate functionality. in some cases ( like
sendmail + postfix ) you can indeed install both. But in others, you cant.

yeah, and the idea of 'everything' is a bit odd given that you can now
include external repos - so you might get an everything install that
brings in 12,000 rpms - runs for 3 days to get done - and needs 50GB of
disk space :)..
