This is one of those situations that's bound to be a little messy. If we
group packages ala gnome desktop, kde desktop, office utilities, server
daemons, etc. we're begging to upset users. I'm also thinking that
presenting them with a portage tree and telling them to go to town might
be tough too (for new users). I don't know what the right answer is
here. Personally, I would like to be able to select individual packages
and have it grey out the dependencies as I do so.
But that's me.
