I'm afraid that the idea with adding such prefixes was (and is) very
stupid. In order to separate lang-specific packages (except
sub-packages, like someapp-somelang) we should add more rpm groups,
Quite on the contrary. I think prefixes are quite useful, since many
language specific packages might have otherwise conflicting names, e.g.
I could imagine python-argparse, java-argparse and so on.
RPM groups, on the other hand, aren't used for anything any more: comps
are used instead.
