I would like to be very clear about something here:

The bugs that arrived "last minute" are (IMO) due to a failing in the
community to properly test ra_serf. And now we have kicked the damned
can down the road. I fear that we're going to run into the same
fuckin' problem when we try to ship 1.8, and it makes me cranky.

Configure your client with ra_serf. Disable Neon. Test it. And if you
have a problem, then FILE A BUG. Do it.

We need serf to properly deal with our goal of "request only the
pristines (by SHA) that we need". Failing to properly test ra_serf
impacts our future direction. PLEASE: no more of this "test at last
minute" crap that has happened.
