We could do this right now, although I don't think "expose the entire
comps tree" makes a lot of sense. We need translations, icons,
screenshots, and of course approval from the Fedora/GNOME designers.
Addons would be a logical place for this, although I think it probably
needs more design thought about how to handle these "non-application"
metagroupings. Installing a compiler is something that *something*
needs to handle, I'm just not sure if that should be gnome-software
itself or something that *uses* gnome-software to do the correct thing
and to handle updates.
