Since we introduced the TRAC system, there have not been a large number of bug reports against thorns - most of the issues have been related to simfactory, the website, Cactus, Carpet, GetComponents etc.  I propose adding one new component: "Einstein Toolkit Thorns", which would be used for any issue relating to an ET thorns.
