from OFS import Folder

def create_folders(self, number):
        ''' create a set of recursive folders with depth equal to number'''

        parent = self
        for index in xrange(number):
                folder = Folder()
                folder.id = str(number)
                parent._setObject(folder, str(number))
                parent = folder
