In this case, I don't see a good way of getting the same information. The
best way I could come up with that was short enough for command-line use
was use find to find directories with only 2 symlinks to them, but of

$ find -type d -empty
Note that if you simply want to remove all empty directories
(including e.g., those rendered empty by removing leaf dirs),
you should also use -depth and -delete:
find . -depth -type d -empty -delete
Thanks both of you, that's great.
