Version: 0.0.3
Severity: wishlist

A suggestion:

I find often that I want to remove a bunch of packages temporarily to
make room for something else.  However, it's hard to know which packages
I removed, so I can put them back.

What I suggest is a way of adding packages to and removing them from
user-defined groups.  So, as well as the groups of 'available' and
'installed' packages, I could have a group for 'reinstall-later' and
one called 'look-at-these-sometime'.

Submitted for your consideration,
