Yep. No need to have this directory around if people aren't using the
functionality. The real error might be that the config display shows a
big red warning about not having the files folder setup when that might
be your intent. Perhaps toning down the red warning to just a "No
'files' Folder Set" set would be another option. No need to worry
people when they haven't done anything wrong.
