How about this for a solution? Make a group for install that contains
the gdm and a group for remove that does not contain gdm. Then yum
would only have to know if it was doing an install or a remove to get
the right group.

Maybe a label field in the group file that yum could check. Label gdm
as install only. Then yum would know to ignore gdm when removing this
