The problem with this approach is more technical than functional, but
consider that Alt-C only deals with a list of files.
You may a file view from multiple branches, and Alt-C the lot, and of
course have ZTreeWin recreate the path structure for the files - but
how does it determine where these empty directories are?
I really think it is a directory function ;-)
the current implementation could also be thought of as a Graft-without
the delete. This is definitely a tree, not file, operation.
