Status changed from Open to Feedback

What should happen if the `dir` is not a directory name?
Just returns `false`, or raises `Errno::ENOTDIR`?

Feature #10121: Dir.empty?

----------------------------------------
On IRC someone asked how to find out if a directory is empty or not, from within ruby.

It seems as if there was no simple way.

I suggest adding `Dir.empty?`

On IRC, someone else suggested this:

~~~ruby
Dir.entries(dir).size == 2
~~~

I do not know if there are better ways but possibly that could
be used for a `Dir.empty?` functionality?
