I've played this game in Scarab, and the idea of infinite nested levels,
as mentioned, is simply a royal pain in the butt.  Component-level
permissions granularity would be a wonderful thing, but to make them
infinitely "nestable" is generally A Bad Thing.  I've been monkeying
around with Scarab (cool, but nowhere near "complete" yet) and Zope
Collectors (working, but very very rudimentary) over the last few
weeks.  To make folders have a less "static" behavior would definitely
be more than a trivial reworking.
