At initial install time, if the livna repo is added, then what is
selected by default is the aggregate of all the repos contents of a
group.  So yes, at install time this would be selected.  After that
though, stuff isn't magically "added" just because it's marked as a
default in a group when you launch pirut, nor should it.
