The information was there in the first request, but there was no way to ask
for it -- If you ask for the log history of 'deleteme', but there is no
directory named 'deleteme' *in the current WC*, then svn tells you so. In
the second request, he specified a directory that *was* present, and svn
gave him information about it.

It could, I suppose, but it would increase the amount of work to be done for
a delete from O(1) to O(number of files in the subtree).
