erm, except that the group is a package within your rpmdb, so if you
tried to remove the individual package, yum/rpm would bark that you're
breaking your deps. You'd have to --nodeps it, and then have an
inconsistent rpmdb. Or you'd do both. You'd remove only the group
metapackage, and the individual package you wish to rid yourself of.
Then you wouldn't have broken deps, but you also wouldn't gain any
"group" advantages for that group in the future.
