I don't think we need -Sg. As long as during a pacman -S group_package pacman 
pus a big info (like currently it does with kde for example or gnome afaik 
and allows for choosing components) that should/would be ok. Because if you 
implement -Sg then doing pacman -S xorg will do what? Nothing? Or just 
install en empty group withtout pulling the actual group contents? Silly ;-)

Just my 2 cents..
