I'm pretty busy right now, please open a ticket for listdir.

_rmtree_safe_fd could remove the directory just after the recursive step using the parent's dirfd.  Of course you'd also have to add a rmdir for the very-tippy-top after the original call in shutil.rmtree too.  But this would prevent the malicious user from even removing empty directories.
