      Description

      At FOSS4G some users lamented that the layer grouping functionality hides the underlying layers that some clients can use to generate a tree like legend (MapFish I believe). We actually can use the wmspath attribute to build layer trees, but it's messy and allows a layer to stay only within one tree.
      With the new UI we should probably merge the two concepts and allow either to build an opaque layer group, or a group that's indeed a visiable tree (eventually allowing the same layer to be visible multiple times in different trees).

        I marked GEOS-4690 resolved as duplicate to this issue.

        All the desktop clients supports these layer trees as far as I know (ArcMap, Mapinfo, QGIS, Gaia, Udig).

        In 2.4.x we can build trees by nesting layer groups. It is easier
