Yes, this is an unsolved problem. :-(
But you can do a workaround, if you've got filenames that are very
similar. :-)

Imagine you've got 30 files of your 100 ones which can be described with
*view.h and *view.cpp. Then you can define a new group in LFV (right
mouse button for context menu) called "My view classes" (the groupname)
and an appropriate filter "*view.h, *view.cpp". Then all those classes
are moved to a virtual subfolder "My view classes".

But that is only possible for filename suffixes, it doesn't work for
instance with a filter "test*.*" (all class names beginning with "test".

Wait for KDevelop2.x, else...
