Well, I don't think it's a bad idea at all - you just have to change the
definition of "group" :-)

Seriously, the group list is just a way of saying "what groups could you
recognize" and search-group is a way of saying "return me all the
packages that are in this group". There's _no_ limit saying that a
package can only belong to one group.

So I think it's totally sane of returning openoffice-draw for "pkcon
search group office" and "pkcon search group graphics".

Does that make sense?
