Render to layers

I'm seeing a new render option in the render settings at the bottom - render layers - it isn't active yet. I am assuming this is something to do with Photoshop but I'm struggling to see what it will apply to? What will this do Mark?

Possibilities? Render each component in an assembly to a different layer in the psd file? Render different bodies? The possibilities are endless! I've used this in Cinema 4D (where it is called multi pass rendering) but there you focus on rendering different elements of the render stages like shadows, different rendering effects, specular passes etc to different photoshop layers.
