How to put iOS 5 Newsstand into a Folder [Temporary]

While Apple's new iOS 5 Newsstand is technically a Folder, and hence can't be put into another Folder, The Coding Massacre has discovered a glitch in the Matrix that can let Newsstand haters banish it into another Folder... at least temporarily.

Basically, you create a new Folder and in the first few seconds, while iOS is getting its act together, you jam Newsstand in there before it can stop you. However, if you launch Newsstand, it will come screaming back out at you.
