Your impression is wrong in a couple of ways. First, FSFS is not
experimental -- it is the default backend store for Subversion, and there's
no way we'd make an experimental filesystem implementation the default.
Second, ra_serf isn't even up to par with ra_neon in the way that FSFS is
with BDB. A bug in ra_serf is not allowed to forcibly stop our release
process (though we may *choose* to halt it in order to fix ra_serf if we wish).
