Maybe an RPM package's group should match the (default/primary) comps
group of that package. That way we theoretically could have a
"comps-merge" tool which would update comps with new packages,
automatically sorting them into their respective default/primary groups
(perhaps marking them as "fuzzy" just to overstretch the gettext
analogy ;-).
