Language isn't really relevant for the group field: it's there to tell
you what something _is_, not what it's written in.  Take tomcat, for
example: its group is "Networking/Daemons", putting it in the same
group as httpd and zope.  Having seperate "Networking/Daemons/Java",
"Networking/Daemons/C" and "Networking/Daemons/Python" groups for
tomcat, httpd and zope wouldn't really add anything to the user's
experience.
