Why does Qt create empty.lproj?
Does anyone know why Qt creates a blank file on OS X in the bundle at Contents/Resources/empty.lproj ? Seems kind of strange. If it's going to create something like this, it should at least just call it English.lproj and be useful.
I see in /qmake/generators/unix/unixmake.cpp it's getting appended to QMAKE_BUNDLE_RESOURCE_FILE, but there is no clear reason why (only happens for app bundles).

I don't know the exact reason, but it seems that it is related to application translation. The interwebs are not very insightful on this.
I've written dozens of Cocoa apps, commercial and freeware, some fully localized. Never seen this before. I didn't see any other reference to it in the Qt source either. Might have to file a bug or find some other way to contact the devs.

My investigation shows that this file is needed to translate the strings in native dialogs according to the selected system locale.
