Yes. 1.7 clients speak the 1.6 protocol with servers that have
"SVNAdvertiseV2Protocol off" in their config.

(ra_neon supports a subset of the HTTPv2 features that ra_serf does.)

There is an overview in the 1.7 release notes (look for "serf" and
"HTTPv2"), and a more technical overview might be found in
notes/http-and-webdav/. (I'm not sure how up-to-date the latter is
wrt the implementation.)
