Currently it is not possible to create an empty Geopackage DB. One can only create a new layer in a (new or existing) Geopackage DB. There are cases where I don't want to create a new layer. I only want to create an empty Geopackage, so that I can later, e.g., import a bunch of shapefiles into it.

Of course, I can create a geopackage layer and delete it later, but this is not super intuitive for the users
