With respect, "it works for me" is not such a useful argument when "me" is
probably not using ra_serf on every common platform/environment/dataset/etc.
 Surely enough folks here that you trust to not be complete idiots have
struggled with ra_serf over the past several years to justify at least
skepticism on this front. :-)

But sure, I agree that we may go to alpha without addressing every known
major issue here.
