Greenhopper hierarchical stories

Using Jira on-demand, with greenhopper plugin, is it possible to have hierarchical stories? (I've read about the structure plugin with greenhopper, but need to demo that feature to see what happens)

Background: we use agilewrap now. I've used Jira last year, and Rallydev before that. Scrum process throughout.

But when using Jira, last year, we could not do hierarchical stories.

As justification for such a feature, think of using the same tool for developers using Scrum, issue tracking by QA, as well as Product Owner visibility. The product owner typically just gives "higher level features". These features are essentially epics. But in order for development to breakdown these epics, it is essentially hierarchical in order to get it down to reasonable length stories that fit into sprints.

Now obviously, we can do without the "hierarchy", and put those stories as one level below the epic. But it is not as "clear".

Thanks,

Anthony

PS: Is there a way we can demo Greenhopper?

GH supports three levels, Epics, Stories and Technical Task (for the scrum team).

This question is no longer applicable, as we no longer use hierarchical stories model in our scrum tool (although we continue to use stories/tasks).
