Hi Adam,

although the answer might not be really satisfying: Components starting 
with a lowercase [1] are for developers wrangling deep in the guts of 
LibO, we normal users normally don't have the skills to follow 
discussion there. But they are not unused [2]. Sometimes developers 
submit such bugs to track the activities in a particular code area, 
sometimes a "normal" FILESAVE Bug mutates because developers see some 
deeper relations they want to proceed.

Resume (very similar to Michael's): That's for the core developers, 
don't care about these Components, there are good reasons why they do 
not appear in the Bug Submission Assistant.

But I see a problem, [2] shows a lot of bugs where the "filters and 
storage" Component only is worrying, I believe any UNCONFIRMED Bug there 
[3] is suspicious. If users select one of these Components they only 
prevent other users from checking and confirming. I will take that on my 
review-todo list.

Best regards
