Why does it need a confirmation? It won't wipe out anything if you use an already existing directory. Am I missing your point here? Confirmations usually come along when you could potentially delete or overwrite things.

Ooh, yeah, I like that... it would go hand-in-hand with the new Make Directory enhancement. Anytime there's a target directory, it'd be nice to be able to specify a new one to create. (but I must admit, I haven't thought through that one fully)
