checking our old revision of now moved item

hi

or setup/builds acts very much on specific revisions. for instance we
have a configuration file with entries like:

   http://path/to/some/module = r12345

now, if someone moves that module to another location we will be unable
(automatically) to retrieve the original module.

   $ svn co http://path/to/some/module -r 12345

   returns "path not found"

i expect that error behaves om the HEAD state of the repository. it's
true it doesn't exist in HEAD, but it *does exist* in that particular
revision, because:

   $ svn copy http://path/to/some/module -r12345 http://path/to/my/test
        
   returns "Committed revision 85306"

so subversion will gladly make a copy of that particular revision.
i'm not sure i understand the rationale of that.

not a major thing, just slightly awkward to retrieve old stuff

thanks
