RE: How to get history on an overwritten svn url?

Correct, space is not created, nor destroyed.
The point is that each of the branches is readily available for history review by using its branch name. Otherwise you have to keep track somewhere of what revisions were part of the "trunk" that you were interested in looking at.
I supposed that you could tag it right before you "destroyed" it, but that isn't much different than creating branches with unique names.
The bottom line is to help out the humans that are using the repository.
You design it, I'll build it

Why? It doesn't save space in the repository.
