Isn't there a way in the bug system to have group association, I mean that a 
feature would look this way in the RFE:

Usability		Feature		Nonsense ideas
						- Coffee maker commands via assembly code
						- Nuclear nuke toolbar password
						- "Make it Nice" button

Possible?  I don't know how but the different rfes could be seen in the group 
at once.
