Indeed. You know, in the experimental stages, it wouldn't hurt to
register protocols serf:// and serfs:// instead of http:// and
https://, and compile both libraries. Later you could grow the
configure test, and later still, if libsvn_ra_serf ever matures to the
point of being able to replace libsvn_ra_dav unconditionally, it
wouldn't be hard at all to delete the one and rename the other.
