ra_serf has passed all of the regression tests for a long time now.
So, I don't think it's experimental by any stretch of the imagination
by now. I've used it as my ra layer for years now. =)

I believe that Daniel reported earlier today that ra_svn was failing
at least some of the same tests as ra_serf (specifically the commit
tests). So, IMO, that's indicative of something broken and not just
"ra_serf is crap, so ignore it."

Sure - that'd be a good start. -- justin
