Log Recovery

As bad luck would have it, I am an idiot and accidentally formatted the drive
with my server's subversion repository on it. Fortunately, I have the latest
working copy on my machine. It could be worse in that I might have lost that too.

I can always create the repository again, export my working copy, and then import
it into the new one. But I value the original log immensely since it shows the
history of the project dating back to last year. If I absolutely must, I can move
on without it, but I would prefer not to. Is there any way at all of finding the
commit log buried in my local copy somewhere? I don't need all of the file diffs
and such, just the plain text commit log that shows who did what and when.

I have been fiddling with dd, testdisk, etc., all day, to no avail. Any help
would be much appreciated in just getting the commit log back.
