Feature Request: remove directory not easily tracable?

Hi there,

I'm running subversion 1.1.3 on Debian Sarge.

Recently, I removed a directory from my workspace which contained a
bunch of files:

$ svn rm deleteme

This also removed

Now for the problem: a colleague wanted to go back and restore deleteme/1.

So he did:

$ svn log -v deleteme
Skipped 'deleteme'

Huh?!!? Subversion seems to have removed the information about
'deleteme' which is fine.

$ svn log -v . | grep deleteme
r824 | tom | 2005-04-20 10:48:28 +0200 (Wed, 20 Apr 2005) | 1 line
Changed paths:
    D /trunk/project/deleteme

don't need it any longer

Why does the first log command didn't get the information the second one
could present? Also, wouldn't it be useful if Subversion would create a
single entry for each file it has to remove from 'deleteme' before it
actually removes the directory? 'svn add' actually works that way,
leaving a bigger footprint in the changelog that I can use to figure out
revision information.
