Geir, if your statement were factually correct I would agree with  
you, but we have not lost or hid any history.  Go see for yourself.

$ cd tags/v1_0_M4
$ svn log


You will find the entire history fir that file including all move and  
copy commands.

Regardless, if you think it is so important to have two copies of the  
same code in our active tree, then you resurrect the code.
