In LibreOffice 4.0.0 it is pretty hard to create new template directory. One has to:
1. Select template
2. Move to directory → New directory → Enter name
3. Move another template to new directory or save current file as template there
4. Go to new directory in template manager and move first template back to it's original place
It is especially cumbersome while saving file as new template, since user has no "Move to directory" option. It has either save template elsewhere and then move it, or cancel saving, create new directory (following steps above) and save again.
What we could use is new item in "gear menu". This way user would simply
1. File → Save as template
2. Gear button → Create new directory → Enter name
Please also note that "gear button" should be always visible then; I have reported this as https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=60587
Deprecated Regression text in Summary, and more or less not a regression, because problem with completely redesigned Dialogs.
Known problem, but would need to add one localize-able string to be fixed.
@andras: would you think it is possible before 4.1?

Bug 60601, marked as duplicate of this one, describes yet another case why it is important to take care of this issue.
Because template can not be saved in "root" of template directory, it appears to be impossible to save templates for Calc and Draw (whose, by default, have no templates at all).

Ah great, thanks!
Is taken into consideration that an empty folder/category was removed (or maybe not showed)?
Explanation: in the current version:
- select template
- choose Move to folder > new folder
- go to template in new folder
- choose Move to folder > folder foo
- close and open template manager
> new folder has disapeared
