Normal zope folders should probably not be used to hold more than a few
dozen items. They store a list of their children in a single ZODB
record, and as their numbers increase so do the size of the transactions
that change the folder. Also normal Zope folders do not handle
concurrent updates and will thus not perform well when multiple users
are adding items to the folder.

Shane Hathaway's BTreeFolder2 product solves these problems. It is the
thing to use when you want to store large numbers of objects in a single
folder. It also handles concurrency much better.
