Subject Re: Create node with ancestors?
Date Thu, 07 Oct 2010 15:43:37 GMT
We just wrote a very simple helper method that splits the path up and
creates each parent in the path.  Its a total of 5 lines of code.
This isn't as efficient as it can be though if you're doing it
frequently (which we don't do), but it works for us.
