Its quite odd as the functionality of groups is there in the bundles hscript commands. Its just a real shame that its not quite implemented in the ui the same way. It also adds some confusion to how it all works together, the fact that people need to ask which to use is a good enough incentive to clean this up. Especailly how they do basically the same thing, creates "easily" accessable sets of nodes.
