The FPC has mostly ignored the Groups tag.  It's not used by yum, and
thus all the tools based upon yum (pirut, anaconda, pungi, repoview,
etc...)  We strongly feel that grouping and tagging belongs outside of
the package itself (so that other people can group them as necessary
without rebuilding them, etc...) and thus we focus on having
appropriate grouping in comps, our current external grouping tool.
