Way to Group Customizable Products?

Or limit numbers purchased with grouped products.

I’m selling configurable packages of items (that have no individual prices)

Two Categories (His, Hers)
----------------------
His Packages (9 items, 4 Flavors)
Hers (8 items, 6 Flavors)

I have each item as a customizable product.  (Hair Gel - Vanilla, Hair Gel - Chocolate, Hair Gel - Mint, Hair Gel - Strawberry)

Problem 1 -
To Create a Vanilla Pack that contains one of each item in Vanilla.
(Essentially a grouped product with the quantity fixed to one?)

Problem 2 -
To Allow Customer to Create a Custom Pack - that contains a total of 9 items in a flavor/ quantity combination of their choice.
(A Group of Configurable Products with a max total quantity?)

Thanks in advance for advice on a Magento way to do this.  I could build this outside of Magento, but that seems stupid.

Two items on the Roadmap will be the answers to my questions…

- Bundles
- Support for grouped products built from configurable products

Is there a release date scheduled?

I was trying to do that yesterday and unable - I have tankinis and bikinis that need to be able to be bought separately (top and bottom) or together depending on size needs, however they also have 2 color choices - plus it needs to be able to track the inventory correctly.
