I'm wondering if there is any way through the groups mechanism to instruct 
yum to remove a particular software package. The modes for packagereq's 
"type" option appear to be mandatory, optional, and default. Having a type 
such as 'disallowed' could instruct yum to remove the listed package, for 

My desire in using the groups interface for this is that it can be easily 
customized per-machine on the server. With a 'disallowed' or 'remove' 
construct I could ensure only the packages I want are installed.
