PlacelessSetup creates no content. buildSampleFolderTree simply creates
a folder structure, it is up to you (or your test) to either store it
somewhere or not. Tests should obviously never store anything, which is
why even functional tests don't open the standard ZODB storage, but an
Note that using PlacelessSetup is often overkill. Its widespread usage
is rather historical. In most cases nowadays, it's enough to
* register the components you need with zope.component.provide* during
your test setUp
* clean up using zope.testing.clean.cleanUp() in your test tearDown
