So I've put some of the concerns in the issue tracker:

http://subversion.tigris.org/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=3979
http://subversion.tigris.org/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=3980
http://subversion.tigris.org/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=3981

Should I raise others? Serf makes lots of requests that might look like
a DOS attack? Serf increases the server logging? Is it useful to have
things like that as issues?

We don't have an alternative merge implementation, or an alternative to
mod_dav_svn, etc. If we did then there would be pressure to switch.
