It is git standard behavior to not track empty directories... Thats  
why people litter .gitignore files everywhere if the directory is to  
be retained.

If it causes problems, I guess it indeed would be best.

Also, it will be a neat idea to require gems right in the config/ 
environment.rb. Recent rails have a config.gem statement that allows  
you to do just this -- define gem dependencies.
