Re: [PATCH] Show "No subfolders" in tree view instead of "empty" when only showing folders

So, back it out? It'd be ok with me - While I see the potential danger of it being misleading, after seeing it in action I agree that it doesn't look too hot. The "No Subfolders" string is a bit too wide for the tree and I guess it could get really wide in some translations: "(Keine Unterverzeichnisse)" in German for example. So most of the time the label will get cropped anyway.

I really think this bug is utterly silly, and I sort of object to it
going in. While "(Empty)" could technically be "misleading" if your an
anal-retentive personality analysing the UI for every possible
misbehaviour I think in reality no actual person would ever get confused
by this, and the replacement "(No subfolders)" being sprinkled all over
the tree just looks like total nitpicking, overcomplicating ass.

I never argued about this in the bug, because discussing something like
this is an eternal fight, and I'd rather spend my time doing something
that actually matters. In no way is this bug "urgent".

Anyway, end of rant.
