Where is this exactly? I've heard reference to it, but there appears to
be no sign-up option...

Actually I implemented yum groupremove <groupname> in terms of figuring
out what groups could be removed.

My biggest question was recursivity. Should it recurse through the lists
of required sub-groups or not.

I think not is the best, let the user sort out the other parts.

And with regards to your particular request - that will probably be
better handled by the yum-queue concept that David Christian and myself
and others came up with on the yum-devel list.

Kevin, if you want to hear more about it conceptually - look at the
yum-devel archives or drop into physics at some point and I can tell you
about it.
