Are many people running it as their day-to-day implementation? I
recently tried to run tests for a patch I was working on over serf,
and found several places where it handled errors (like invalid user
input or network problems, not internal corruption) with aborts... I
fixed one or two of those places, but it definitely didn't fill me
with confidence that ra_serf, in its current incarnation, is ready to
be our primary implementation. (In my copious free time I'd like to
learn how serf itself works so I can be more help in fixing these
