FWIW, I'd like to see this happen. Here is why I care:

We have been in the process of moving the Subclipse project to Eclipse.org
and making it an official Eclipse project. As part of this process we
have had to undergo a legal review of all of our code by the Eclipse
Foundation lawyers. Since we rely on JavaHL, this also means Subversion
code has to be reviewed by the lawyers. We were told upfront there is no
chance they will accept Neon because it is LGPL. I told them about Serf,
which would be OK. For me, this means I'd just have to make my own Win32
binary builds using Serf since that is not how the "official builds" are
currently made.

Anyway, since we would have to rely on Serf, I'd love to see it made the
default so that it is getting more attention. And if we get performance
boosts as well, even better.
