[arch-general] How to install a group when a package with same name exists?

Today I wanted to install the group (xorg-apps). But there is a package with
the same name. I did not find a way to tell pacman I wanted the group and
not the package.

I ended doing this:
sudo pacman -S `pacman -Sg xorg-apps | sed 's!xorg-apps \(.*\)!\1!'`

But there must be an easier way. Any thought about this?
