DosDeleteDir on OS2 behaves like rmdir() iirc, from the IBM 3995 Optical
Library Dataserver "Reference for C-Series Models" (of all places);

	DosDeleteDir -- DosRmDir
	Definition: Remove a subdirectory from the specified disk

	Remarks: This command removes a subdirectory from the specified
	disk. Directories must be empty.

Actually, one of my worries was beos, where I remember there being a
recursive delete version of rmdir(), and getting bitten by it :)

Anyway, it's definitely safe to use.
