Well, there's

 * "svn obliterate" http://subversion.ti​gris.org/issues/show​_bug.cgi?id=516
   There's a python script that does this for bdb repos, from 2008 or so.
   "Additional comments from Karl Fogel Wed Apr 16 13:33:42 -0700 2008" ff.

 * http://robmayhew.com​/delete-parts-of-sub​version-history/
   This means that all revision numbers are off; you could either fix FSVS'
   data files (anchored text search/replace), or use "sync-repos".

 * same as above, but with a lot of empty revisions before the "real" history.
   Has the advantage that FSVS and all other (up-to-date) clients see no change
   at all.


Hope that helps!


Regards,

Phil
