I would suggest you to not create a deep tree.
Personally, I store pictures like that :
Then, I put best pictures inside and create a subdir others for other 
pictures I want to keep :)

Then, you can put a few albums in a Collection (check album properties) 
and use view/sort by collection.

It's not in the svn version, too.

I rather think of a collection...

If you are ready to experiment, you should try the latest beta release. 
Maybe you could wait a few days because Gilles announced there will be a 
release candidate soon.

Hope this helps.
