If they contain .svn directories, then Subversion knows about them,
and simply deleting them will make Subversion unhappy. So instead you
should probably "svn rm" them.

I guess the problem is you're trying to automatically identify these
"empty" directories, except that tools looking for empty directories
will see the .svn directories and think they are not empty?

I think it's probably time to write a little script to find and
eradicate these directories. Not sure if there's a way to coerce
"find" to handle it for you.
