As there are no other users, we don't know if it is more useful and
general to return nil for empty basenames or to return "".

There are no general uses of `uniquify-buffer-base-name'. There is no
general definition of a "base name", it is an internal thing of
uniquify; so it is up to us to decide whether an empty basename is a
base name at all or not. For the moment being, the only user (desktop)
is cleaner if an empty basename and no basename at all are equivalent.
