Except won't this restore the entire contents of the parent's old revision
rather just undoing the element deletion?

BTW, I swear I tried this already...so I tried it again. If I run this
command on the parent dir using dav, I get the following:
  ...\eeaston> svn cp -r 217
http://localhost:81/migratedrepo/trunk/casetracker/src/com/eeaston/util .
  svn: Obstructed update
  svn: `util' is in the way

And if I run it on the deleted directory itself using dav, I get the

   ...\eeaston>cd util
   ...\util>svn cp -r 217
   svn: RA layer request failed
   svn: PROPFIND request failed on
   svn: PROPFIND of
': 404 Not Found (http://localhost:81)

It turns out that doing the reverse merge with file: URLs works. This is a
pretty rare scenario, so I think I can get by doing this for the time being.
