Hi Brian,

We don't currently support this feature, but we have talked about it 
before and we are interested in the possibility of supporting something 
like this. It would be interesting to use to know your use case, as 
there is some difficulty in coming up with a nice way to express what 
should be included or excluded from the CLI. You mention package 
groups, which makes me also think of package categories. Thanks for the
