Well, if they are empty, why not? It is actually rather unavoidable. I could 
be missing something, but this is how I understand things:
- packages made before this change will have share/pixmap in +CONTENTS, so 
this directory will get removed if it is empty and there is nothing we can 
now do about that, since those packages with their +CONTENTS are already 
installed on users machines. Nothing however should break because of this 
since (1) packages that would rely on this directory being present already 
have it listed either in +CONTENTS or +MTREE_DIRS and (2) things outside of 
packages that would rely on this directory present would already be broken 
before since these packages removed share/pixmaps directory if empty already.
- packages made after this change will have share/pixmaps in +MTREE_DIRS, so 
it won't get removed upon deinstall of such packages. This shouldn't be a 
problem as far as I can see.
