In general, especially with respect to new developers adding new
functionality incrementally, I'd rather see the work happen on a
branch until something functional has been produced. As the configure
glue has already been committed, I wouldn't bother yanking it (as
previously stated, there's more code to come), but would not like this
to be the de facto process for future drops.

Justin isn't exactly new to this project, so got more leeway with
ra_serf.
