Why not release serf 0.3 now, together with svn 1.6 and plan for serf
1.0 together with svn 1.7?

Before freezing the serf API, I'd like to see how we can move some of
the code in libsvn_ra_serf/util.c and libsvn_ra_serF/auth.c to serf. We
probably also have to implement/fix some of the outstanding TODO's
before we can make serf the default http library for svn. I'm not sure
we need API changes for those TODO's, but I'd like to still have the option.
