Serf trunk @ HEAD
Client is Windows 7
Server is Windows 2008

Sorry, I was not clear. I was interested in the reduction of requests
from 1.6 to 1.7 when using Neon. I only ran the tests with Serf after
to compare the performance numbers. I know the request count goes
down with Serf too, but I did not bother running the tests using Serf

For Neon, I think it is significant. In my case, 1.7 Neon issued 6,308
fewer HTTP requests. My latency is .2 seconds. So that lopped around
21 minutes off the total test time when comparing Neon to Neon. I
realize with Serf it is less of an issue.
