[Grok-dev] Folders for nested pages in Grok

I would create objects based on grok.Container and create management  
views on that. (The simple approach)

Or I would have a simple grok.Model based object with a grok.Container  
attribute. (The more complex approach)

In the latter case I might even use adapters to separate the logic of  
adding the containment support at runtime and providing CRUD (i.e. I  
would end up with a model and two adapters with context being one of  
two marker interfaces ICanBeMadeIntoAContainer, IAmAContainer)

        def blessAsContainer(self):
	  if not hasattr(self.context, 'content'):
               self.context.content = grok.Container()
           # and probably add some marker interface
