Removal of CD-created empty directories on publish
I changed the folder structure of my site to be less flat. When I republished, I noticed that CityDesk didn't remove the old directories, even though they were now empty.
It should, but at the same time we don't want to be completely destructive because people do add things that are not under CD's control into folders on the server.

RE: We could check to see if the folder is empty, but FTP isn't so helpful in this regard. It _can_ be done, it's just that its trickier than it seems.
It might also be nice to add "links" to CD so that I might have a reference to a file that I intend to have in that directory but am not storying in the CD database itself.
Maybe, in a future release, you could add a tombstone feature. You mark the folder or files that you want to get rid of and then it would be easy to get the FTP command to delete the ones you want to lose and keep the ones that should stay.
