svn ancient history broken

[clip]

The first good svn version is apparently 541; the prior commit 540 had
the log message "reorganizes py code". This was when we moved
"matplotlib" to "lib/matplotlib" which I thought svn would handle
gracefully. Any gurus have any idea if that early history is hidden
somewhere in the bowels of svn?

svn ls -r7 -Rv https://matplotlib.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/matplotlib/

There seems to be some code under "branches/jdhunter/matplotlib/".
Is it the correct stuff?

It's hard for me to know exactly if it the correct code (ie what was
in the HEAD of the trunk at revision 7) but it is at least the right
files in branches/jdhunter/matplotlib.
