Is there a way to automatically create folders on sharepoint/skydrive using 365 via scripting or a template?

What I am after is once a folder is created, to generate a specific list of subfolders.

Clients
Client1
   + Sub1
       -sub1.1
       -sub1.2
   + Sub2
       -sub2.1
       -sub2.2

Client2
   + Sub1
       -sub1.1
       -sub1.2
   + Sub2
       -sub2.1
       -sub2.2

Cannot do this using the tools we get by default. The PowerShell module for SharePoint Online has very few cmdlets available, and creating new library/folder is not one of them.

You can do some more stuff if you install the SharePoint Service 2013 Client Components SDK/SharePoint 2013 .NET Framework Client Object Model (CSOM), as described here for example:

As a workaround, you can create them locally, skydrive will sync them back to SharePoint Online.

That was the solution, not what I wanted, but it did the trick.
