Given that we haven't even released 1.3 yet, judging by our past experience
of releasing a new minor roughly every 6 months, and the serf work should
be completed by April. So, I doubt that'll be a problem unless we rush out
1.4 sooner than that - which I haven't seen any discussion of yet.

If we do the work in trunk, my expectation would be that 1.4 would still
have neon by default with serf a configure-time option, but consider
switching for 1.5 if all goes well and it does have the advantages I think
it will. This follows what we did with fsfs and BDB. -- justin
