In WWW::DataWiki, collections are second-class citizens. A collection
cannot exist unless it contains items.

Putting a collection/directory will fail. (Perhaps it should be
allowed but treated as a no-op?) Putting an item into a directory which
does not exist yet will create that directory (however many levels of
nesting are needed).
