Sure. And until recently, nobody would cough up reproduction recipes
or file bugs. Instead, there was simply a "hand wave" that problems
existed. Not very actionable.

There are now two or three recipes that can be used to track down
issues. This is good.

But my point still stands: if I can be productive on it, then I
presume many others can, too. And until we get *reported* failures
from those other people, I have little data to suggest the sky is
falling and ra_serf should be pulled at this time.
