class FolderInUse:

    def __init__(self, core):
        self.core = core

    def true_for(self, archivefolder):
        return any([instance.forbid_to_close(archivefolder) for instance in

Is this any better? The true_for name does not satisfy me a lot...
maybe because it is too similar to True. Anyway, I'm trying a good
naming so that code is readable, like:

specification = FolderInUse(core)

if specification.true_for(folder):

Any thought about this?
