neon has a callback function which provides progress information.
Basically you get information in the form of (transmitted bytes, total
bytes to transmit). While 'total bytes to transmit' is not always
available (and then simply set to 0), the 'transmitted bytes' always is.
That's the info I use in TSVN to at least show the user that *something*
is going on (i.e. I'm showing for example "transferring at 3.5kBytes/s",
if the total value is also available, I even show a progress bar).

In subversion/libsvn_ra_dav/session.c you can find out how that callback
is used (search for 'neonprogress').

I'm not sure how this would have to be done in serf though.
