Merging ra_serf-auth branch back to trunk.

From: <svnlgo_at_mobsol.be>

With the recent code changes in serf trunk (to be released real soon now) I got
the NTLM authentication code in ra_serf working on Windows. Working means, most
of our tests our working - expect authz_tests, but that's normal - and as far as
I know it's free of aborts. The current implementation is pretty basic and I
didn't test it extensively yet, I don't have all the required infrastructure
either. It's most likely not working in all situations where neon NTLM does
work.

Summarizing, the code works for me, but it's not production ready.

My question is, how do you guys think about merging the ra_serf-auth code back
to trunk? I'd like to do that now, before 1.5 is released, so people interested
in using and testing ra_serf can give feedback on its NTLM support. The
ra_serf-auth branch only contains NTLM specific code and is ra_serf specific,
so it's not impacting any of our 'production' code.

If no one objects I'll merge the branch back to trunk later today and add a note
in our release notes indicating its experimental status.

One of the reasons I'd like to release this code early, is that I want to get
ra_serf ready for 1.6. Maybe not for switching the default, but at least to
make it a better alternative to neon for most of our users.
