FSFS was a runtime option in 1.1 and 1.2, and it was a really easy one
to use--just specify it at repository creation time and you're set.

A compile-time option is fine for development on the trunk, but it's not
really appropriate for getting field experience which we could use to
consider switching the default. I think a use-serf option
in .subversion/config (or servers? not sure) is probably the only
realistic choice for that.

I'm not saying that we have to collect field experience before switching
the default--substantial in-house testing could probably justify that as
well. But we wouldn't be following what we did with FSFS.
