A few quick questions about the new style collections in Plone 4.2, to
check that I understand them correctly.
Unless I have missed something, old style collections are not migrated
to new style when migrating to Plone 4.2. Does someone have code that
would do that? Perhaps an add-on that I missed? If not, then I might
want to create a package for that.
Sub collections are not possible in the new style. I guess this is
because the UI and the logic can quickly get confusing and you do not
win much over creating a second, separate collection.
I am guessing that creating a folderish version of the new style
collections should work though, allowing you to nest them. Some logic
would be needed that looks for a parent collection and combine the two
queries. That may not be good for Plone core, but are there technical
reasons why this would not be possible?
