Listing old instances of revisions

Hello,

I'm currently trying to re-piece together a merge that went wrong and
am having a problem with how to access the information I need.

There are two levels to my problem. The first is how to obtain
information on directories in the repository that have been deleted.
We delete branches once we're done with them to keep the list of
branches managable. In this case we need to access the branch again
and I can't find an elegant way to find information about the
revisions between which the branch existed. The only way I've found is
to look in the log file of the branches directory for the 'delete'
commit and run svn log from 1:REVISION using --stop-on-copy. It's
cumbersome and prone to human error.

The next level is that in one case we actually have a branch that was
created, deleted, created again (by copying from trunk) and then
deleting. I didn't create this situation but I'm having to clean it
up, and I'm not sure if there are any relevant changes in the first
incarnation of the branch that have to be merged in before I merge
from the second incarnation. However, again I'm struggling to find the
revisions between which both instances existed.

What I could really do with is some way to pass subversion a path to
an object and have it give me a list of all objects bearing that
path's name through time, and which revisions the objects existed
between. I'm hoping that this functionality already exists, but if it
did I'm unfortunately unable to find it.

Any thoughts or suggestions?

Thanks.
