Yes.

So, I certainly don't support artificially restricting the pipeline
depth to 4 or 8 - especially when the current default httpd config is
100. ra_serf is used in a very particular case that doesn't apply to
Firefox: it's talking to only Subversion servers - and in 99% of the
cases, that means there's an Apache sitting on the other end. Firefox
certainly can't make that same claim - they have to work with all
sorts of random servers that may not support pipelining at all - so,
ra_serf can/should be optimized for our common case: there's an Apache
httpd sitting on the other end. -- justin
