This plugin alters Trac's behavior so that the interface supports multiple layers of components. In projects with lots of components, rearranging these components into several layers can clear up the list of components. The component does not change the data model of the components; it merely manipulates the user interface. See below for an example.
An alternative plugin targeting the same problem is ComponentHierarchyPlugin.
