+1 on this solution.

(I'm +1.01 on not shipping dependencies, but I haven't followed recent
discussions very carefully, and if this has been rejected before, let's
not start the discussion again.)

I don't know if there is a serf tarball to ship yet, but if there is,
it would be nice to do so making it easier for people to test
