Code up your Data Flow as you normally would.  Then go and select the components that you want to group together – via clicking and dragging a selection window, or click-selecting components.  Any component combinations you want.  Then right-click and select Group.

I admit that I didn’t know it existed either.  This does seem rather useful.
