What would you use an empty commit for?
What does it mean?

It seems to me that empty commits conflict with monotone's model of
"tree version" and "tree contents" being identical concepts.

The new .mtnonce idea modifies this somewhat; but if I understand it
correctly this file would encode the contents of the parent, in which
case it breaks down for empty commits.
