There's some newUI wrinkles there; for F18, the DVD media actually could
not supplement the install from online repos (pre-newUI this was always
possible). I think this is meant to be possible again in F19, but I
didn't get around yet to checking if it is, and if so, how it's
presented in UI terms. I don't *think* the package spoke has any code to
split up the groups by whether they're on the medium you're installing
from or not, but I could certainly be wrong.
