Not sure you can make it seamless without just copy&pasting the
entire group (which is a bad idea). <grouplist> within <group>

Or they shouldn't need to necessarily be in a group at all, possibly.
Depends on how you want to get them installed. (For example, dosfstools
and perhaps the ntfs tools should be included in a desktop where you're
expected to access those sorts of filesystems. reiserfs, not so much.)
