The AUR does not delete history, ever. You can still clone the repo, but
deleting it from the AUR caused the
https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/$pkgname listing to be unlinked, all
comments to be purged from the database, and the package itself to be
added to the list of repo packages (otherwise known as the AUR
blacklist) which cannot be pushed to.

As for the svntogit history, repo packages are kept in SVN, and there is
no practical way to import an AUR git repo even if you wanted to. :)
