It's actually quite hard to retrieve something that was deleted. You
have to find the rev in which it was deleted (basically, you need to svn
log the whole module [!!!]), and then check that out.

Chances are, nobody ever wants to see nant again. However since there is
essentially 0 cost (space wise) to keep it, I see no reason not to.
