What is the .svn/empty-file for?

This got bounced back at me, forgive me if it already made it to

I've been writing a few hacked up scripts to remove empty
files/directories from my drives, and, as part of the process, have been
trying to figure out what quite a number of automatically generated
files seem to be for. As an example, my working copies of various
repositories have in their .svn directories a file called "empty-file"
(a truly appropriate name because the files invariably have nothing in
them). The question is, can I safely remove them without screwing
something up? And what the heck are they for???
