Currently the deletethisfile is there inorder to make the zip work. it doesnt
copy empty directories so frank decided to put the deletethisfile in it .It
should be removed for the final product.

This bug is a reminder to get all the "DeletethisFile" population files out of
the finished product.

This bug was vandalized by a clueless idiot.  I believe I have undone all of the
vandalism.

Perchance this bug is completely resolved by now...
...but in any case, it does not appear to be a blocker for the M15 stability 
branch.

Frank originally created this file, and I have no idea how to get rid of it.  If 
anyone knows how to include empty directories into a .zip file let me know. 
Thanks.

I went back and read all the comments and it seems to me that the empty folders 
and unnecessary files are NOT in the finished product.  is that true?  if so 
please mark this invalid.  blee, can you check to see what's going on when we 
get the cck builds running again?  thanks.

Removed DeleteThisFile from the following directories

...CCKTool\Configs\MyIsp\Workspace\CustInst
...CCKTool\WSTemplate\Output
...CCKTool\WSTemplate\Workspace\Bkmarks
...CCKTool\WSTemplate\Workspace\CustInst
The installer now creates these dirs during installation, except for 
...CCKTool\WSTemplate\Workspace\Bkmarks which already contains a file
