ok, i'm getting some weird KeyError-s, if I try to create a container in 
the script, which I run with bin/interactive_debugger.

root = conn.root()
myapp = root['myapp']
myapp['newfolder'] = grok.Container()

throws KeyError: u'newfolder' .

I would rather run this setup code in an event handler anyway, so guess 
I should wait for the new grok release and the 
grok.IApplicationInitializedEvent ? Creating new objects in the 
ObjectAdded or ObjectCreated event handler for the app probably isn't 
the best idea. The ObjectAddedEvent is fired when I add the objects to a 
container, but something else goes wrong along the way, because they 
don't get an IntId..
Is it possible to use the new grok.admin without breaking something else?
