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.
