Exactly, this has nothing with empty files. Anyway git *does* track
empty files, it just doesn't track empty directories.

Regarding "how should it look like", it's up to the given
vcs-fast-import/export implementation, it just has to be consistent.
FWIW both git and darcs implementations use: one ":foo bar" / line,
where foo is an int (mark number) and bar is the (persistent) id of the
commit/patch.
