Try using getattr to get the object... heres a python script to do it a
little more cleanly:

import string

def create_folders(self):
 path = '/a/b/c'      # create a folder for each part of the string, nested.

 for p in string.split(path, '/'):
  if p != '':
   self = create_folder(self, p)

 return 'Done'


def create_folder(folder, id):
 try: folder.manage_addFolder(id)
 except: pass

 new_folder = getattr(folder, id)
 return new_folder
