The PDB functions already exist for handling layer groups, and  
Script-fu does not have any problem making use of these functions. The  
Python-fu extension has not yet been updated to handle groups (there  
is no 'group' class).

Unfortunately, Script-fu does not provide a way to create  
subdirectories so a direct scripting solution to Javier's problem is  
not available. Using Script-fu, each layer could be saved with the  
layer tree structure information embedded in the filenames. For example


A BASH script could then relocate these files to a suitable directory  
tree (or perhaps the animation tool could deal with the flat files  
directly, extracting the embedded information from the filenames).

Of course, writing a C plug-in would avoid these problems.
