dillo, joerg and myself discussed it in detail IRL and via mail.
It will allow us to majorly simplify the directory handling in PLISTs.
All (most?) @dirrm and unexec ${RMDIR} can now be removed, the
directories will be removed automatically when the last content is
removed; if a package needs a directory even if it is empty, then the
new special keyword @pkgdir can be used.
