[Openstack] can swift create child container?

The object names (full "path" so to speak) are actually just keys in the
key-value sense.

Depending on how you are accessing the objects, just make

Let's say you're using python-swiftclient to post an object

Instead of
put_object(*container*, *"myobject"*, *contents*)

Make the key/directory "mydir" come before "myobject"
put_object(*container*, *"mydir/myobject"*, *contents*)

Ok, so this isn't a subcontainer. It's really just organization of your
object blobs in directory like structure (there are no actual directories
in swift, even if the UI you might be using presents it that way).

Hope this helps,
