'Folders' provide an easy gui for managing sub-items one at a time, and a 
single interface for accessing sub-items that enables things like the tree 
view (in the left pane of the management interface) to work with different 
folder implementations.

Im not sure any of that is a benefit to you, and Folders arent the only kind 
of ZODB container.  I suspect you would be better off directly using a BTree 
of some kind.
