If you're using either the WPKG client, or WPKG-GP rather than running wpkg.js directly, I believe you can configure this in a single place.  With WPKG client, looks like settings.xml.

With WPKG-AD, you can set this in wpkg-gp.ini (or whatever you named the ini file):

With that, the only package that I need to define SOFTWARE in is the one to install wpkg-gp, or any other packages that might get called from an initial installation.
