Please do not, under no circumstances, change the 3.2 release tarballs at this point. They are mirrored around the world now with cryptographic hashes and signatures. Changing them will break things for many people, especially for an extremely minor thing like an empty directory.

I'm not sure if Pawel's tarball change should be reverted now as it already caused uproar, so changing it back might only make matters worse.
