Hmm. My groupinstall system for apt could be rather easily be extended to 
cover Suse's *.sel files as well, the only RH-specific part there is the 
"backend" python script which parses the comps.xml file, if I just make 
the backend configurable it'll then be possible to have a common system 
for at least Suse and RHL/FC on apt. Now we "just" need to 
a) write the backend for Suse's *.sel files
b) make those accessible from Synaptic

Hmm, that might be useful for some purposes as well but at least on RHL/FC 
the package groups aren't useful at all for task-style operation.

Note that apt-rpm on multilib systems like x86_64 isn't all that smooth 
sailing. Or actually .. no problems as long as there aren't overlapping 
i386 and x86_64 packages but once you do (at least on RHEL and FC this is 
the case for a typical installion) things break rather spectacularly :-/
