nah, better not. Groups are for official packages to make installing
of for example desktop environments easier. Creating groups for each
and every package is not the way to go, we have depends and optdepends
for that. Besides that adding new groups for unsupported packages does
not make much sense to me.

ps. there is already beautiful-soup in community. I assume we can
remove beautifulsoup from unsupported?

Post what you have and the error message. Maybe someone has time to help you.
