Not easily. You can do a svnadmin dump, then mess with the dumpfile,
and then reload the repository, but it's probably easier to just
delete the project from HEAD and move on with your life, unless you
have a particularly good reason to get rid of the history (i.e. you
aren't allowed to keep it for legal reasons, or something like that).
