I see where you're coming from, but to do so would take up an awful
lot of storage space on the server, and encourage downloading of
versions we are trying to obsolete. There is no benefit to going back
to older revisions, except in specific cases where something has
broken, and even then the user ought to be reverting back to the last
stable (release) build - after submitting a bug report of course!
Usually if we know what has broken, referring to the SVN logs allows
us to pinpoint when this happened anyway, and building older revisions
ourselves is always an option if it comes to that.
