the response also pointed out that you could right click on the group
and 'select all' or 'select none' for the group. All right, so it takes
8 clicks instead of 1 click to 'install everything' now...not a big
deal.

What you don't get from the bugzilla entry but can get from parsing the
developers list is that they are trying to shed packages from Fedora
Core and push them out to 'Extras' and make 'core' truly just the core
and 'install everything' is less valuable as they succeed in doing that.
What you don't get if you don't read the developers list is what is that
they don't even agree on what is meant by 'install everything' - where
some might interpret it to mean every package, others thought it
shouldn't include every language pack under the sun for every package
and as you consider the impact of this, you begin to get the
point...'install everything' was never really clear about it's purpose
at the outset.
