Are there still unzippers that would not bother creating a folder if there arent any files for that folder ?

IIUC this was always a Windows problem. In recent nightlies d_m wrote a platform-independent mkdir function that enables us to create any missing directories during init_angband, so we've got rid of the delete.me files in trunk. grep for create_dirs and you could probably just pull in the code wholesale.
