I think groups may need a bigger rework than just those changes. To me,
package groups should be as close as possible as menu entries (for graphical
packages), but maybe that would be too few groups ?
In fact, debian has some advance upon us on this, by the use of debtags. We
could maybe simplify grouping if we could put some information in tags rather
than in groups.
I don't know if there are cross-distributions efforts to harmonize package
groups, but that would be an interesting subject to tackle in the upcoming
meeting in Nürnberg.
More questions than answers :)
