It is easy, if you are a bit sloppy.

 * Access to "/": "PARENTS[-1]"
 * Existence check: "_.hasattr(object,what)"
     NOTE, that this is the sloppy part.

      - "_.hasattr" will return true, if "object" has
        attribute "what" (that is what we want)
        *OR* when it has acquired such an attribute
        (we do *NOT* want that here).

        What we would need is a DTML accessible version
        of "aq_base". This is trivially handled by
        an external method.

      - it returns true, when there is such an attribute.
        This may not be a folder.

        You can check "meta_type" to see, it is indeed a folder.

 * creation: "manage_addFolder"
     look in the ZDP's (http:zdp.zope.org) object reference
     for the function's signature.

     I think, this info is available in the Zope 2.2 help system, too.
