> Currently, the namenode.delete() method allows recursive deletion of a directory. That
is, even a non-empty directory could be deleted using namenode.delete(). To avoid costly programmer
errors, the namenode should not remove the non-empty directories in this method. Recursively
deleting directory should either be performed with listPaths() followed by a delete() for
every path, or with a specific namenode method such as deleteRecursive().
