Getting a listing of files that ever existed?

As far as I understand, "svn ls" is only capable of giving a listing of
the files that exist[ed] in a _specific_ revision. Is there some way to
get a listing of _every_ file that ever existed in a certain directory
(i.e. a listing that would simultaneously include files long deleted and
files recently added)? Thanks!

P.S. If somebody is wondering what the motivation for this question is -
we are considering having a policy of removing (via "svn rm -R")
branches that are no longer "live" in order to make it easier to see
which branches are still live and to make it meaningful to check out the
"whole" repository (that would give the trunk and live branches). The
main problem with this approach it that extracting the list of _all_ the
branches (including the dead ones) would become pretty hard.
