      Description

      QDoc deletes the contents of the directory specified by -outputdir - this is dangerous for users that do not expect that behavior. It's also somewhat unnecessary; the goal, as far as I understand it, was to avoid stale content in the output directory after multiple runs. Instead, we should check if the output directory is not empty and warn/error out accordingly.
