stats directory - where did it come from?

One bright sunny day I noticed a new directory "stats" in my project root. It seems to include a copy of the project structure(?!). Why is it there? do I really need it?

Is it possible that you did rails stats instead of rake stats ? That would have created a new rails project within a stats folder instead of outputting the current project stats
