Creating multiple child hierarchies of objects in batch

In one operation, create child hierarchies under multiple objects: #1. Creates a new Sound object called 'Boom' under the specified parent, #2. Creates a new virtual folder called 'Guns' under the default work unit. If a folder with the same name already exists, it automatically finds a unique name, #3. Creates an event called 'Play_SFX' under the virtual folder 'WAAPI', with Play action on the SFX sound object, #4. Creates a Random Container called 'Boom' under the specified parent, with two Sound objects 'A' and 'B', #5. Creates a Custom Cue inside an existing Music Segment with the specified name and time in milliseconds. See the examples for ak.wwise.core.object.create to compare the two schemas.
