PackageKit groups

The PackageKit team have been rocking recently with lots of new features and bugfixes. There is yum group support thanks to Tim, and soon there will be other backends supported too.

The screenshot below just shows what pk-application looks like with groups support. All the names are translated into the session users locale, as you would expect. Comments welcome.
