Remove folder without affecting history

From: Collin Peters <cadiolis_at_gmail.com>

If you have a folder structure in your respository such as:


And that top folder (xyz) has 100 source code files in it... Is there
anyway to remove the folder 'bar' without losing all the respository
history on all the source files. So the structure would go to
'foo/abc/xyz/' from 'foo/bar/abc/xyz/'

When I created my source code folder structure I added an additional
folder level I thought I would use but I never have so now I would
like to remove it. Problem is that I don't see a way to do that
without A) moving all the code and losing the history (a move is a
copy and delete from what I understand) or B) re-creating the
repository in which case I lose the revision number and the history.

Any ideas?
