Ok, if that's a request for more input from admins, I'll pitch in. I'm
the svn admin for my company, and I'm eagerly awaiting 1.4 for the wc
improvements -- they'll be a big win for all of our developers. I'm
less interested in serf; we're currently using neon, and definitely
experiencing performance pain with it, but I plan to alleviate that pain
by getting svnserve access to our repositories set up within the next
month, so serf won't be a big win for us.

While 6 months seems to me to be the sweet spot for minor releases, IMO
the current state of trunk is ripe for an exception to that rule.
