So, there's a difference between shipping it and making it our default in trunk.

It's kind of sitting on a chicken-and-egg requirement: if folks start
to use it more, ra_serf will get more attention and it's more likely
to get those features; but if we won't adopt it until it is
feature-complete, I'm not sure I'll have the incentive to finish it up
as it seems we're constantly playing 'fetch me a rock' with vague
promises to switch as people add more things to my plate that I must
do to consider switching the default in trunk.

So, would we be willing to switch the default in trunk say next month?
 I'll do my best to get the Win32 stuff straightened out by then, but
I can't commit to anything else before then. But, I really think it's
good enough to start having this conversation.

We can try it as the default for a few months, then we can then
evaluate its stability and feature set when we're ready to consider
starting the 1.5.x series. If we don't have all of the features we
want by the time we start 1.5.x, then we can simply rollback the
default to ra_dav for 1.5.x. -- justin
