Request to add new groups to comps.xml

Hello devel,

The NeuroFedora SIG is working to create a Comp-Neuro Fedora Labs
<https://labs.fedoraproject.org/> live image/installer.  We would also
like group our packages into an easier-to-install format for our target
audience, which may include researchers who are new to Fedora.

To this end we would like to respectfully request the addition of two
new groups in Comps.XML
<https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/How_to_use_and_edit_comps.xml_for_package_groups>.

The first group would be "neuro-simulators" which would include several
simulation packages as mandatory installs and a dozen or so python
packages as default installs.

The second group would be "comp-neuro-tools" and would include many of
the packages found on the Neuro-SIG group's page on src.fp.o
<https://src.fedoraproject.org/group/neuro-sig> as well as the software
being packaged on the NeuroFedora pagure
<https://pagure.io/neuro-sig/NeuroFedora/issues>.
