I would strongly suggest that we NOT attempt to rebuild the update
mechanism in ra_serf at this late stage. I can understand the
pragmatic desire (eg. efficiency for many small files), I think that
is a discuss best reserved for post-1.7.

It seems that Lieven is on the right path with a fix, so maybe some
extra tweaking will make that happen.
