Using Epics as Themes..... or a better way to group user stories?

Hi,

I've been trying to find a good way to group like user stories. Themes seem to be the accepted Agile way of doing this. Theme's don't seem to be supported by Jira/Greenhopper but there are many posts by other users on the web encouraging users to substitue Epics for Themes to accomplish this goal. I'm by no means a purist so if this can work i'd love to do it..... problem is I can't figure out how to us Epics in this capacity eithers.

Again, i want to group like User stories together so that they can be easily filtered by group etc. Any help would be appreciated.

Very Best,

One way would be to use components , though components logically imply something else but it can be used as a workaround.

Thanks Vishwajeet. I looked at that option but unfortunately we need to use Components for thier intended purpose in the project I'm currently configuring. Perhaps that's a workaround for other projects though.
