By design, this is the only way (currently). The whole point of using
a system like Subversion is to keep all your history.

Unless you made significant changes to every file in that branch and
had a lot of binaries, you likely won't reclaim much space anyway, due
to Subversion's diff algorithm and cheap copies. At best, you'll be
rewriting history, and depending on what the branch was for, losing
important information about what happened in your project and why.
