Is that really a bug ?? if the directory was share/package, it would
seem logical that stow removes it with the package.
And except from hard coding some well know directories (bin, lib, etc,
...) in sto,w I don't see how to avoid these problems. And removing an
empty directory is not a big deal since it contains nothing...
Any other thoughts ?
