You can't delete immutable directories such as . and .. Plus, don't ever
dare to think of interpreting rmdir arguments. Just do what is written.
rmdir . makes no sense. If someone wants rmdir `pwd` he's free to write
just that. Of course, it's ugly because getcwd and the like are kludges,
but you should only delete things you know anyhow.
