Add ability to create Contact, Query, Test List folders on the fly when using the importList or createQuery calls

It would be great to be able to create contact source folders via the API like we can when using the ScheduleMailing API call with the CREATE_PARENT_FOLDER parameter. We can already define where  a contact source should be stored but that folder must already exist. 3 specific API calls that could use this functionality:






CreateContactList already supports this for contact sources and ScheduleMailing supports this for Mailings.

How will this idea be used?

Our Email Playground product makes extensive use of the APIs to provide a simplified front end but we are reliant on pre-creating folder structures during initial configuration of our product and as new accounts are added to it. Users can create contact lists, queries, new templates all from our platform but without the ability to dynamically create the needed folder structure we are either forced to pre-create the folders or dump everything into a single folder or the root which can cause UI issues within WCA if the list of items grows too large.

What is your industry? Non-Industry Specific
What is the idea priority? Medium
