Hmm, I do not see this with current 1.7 client so maybe that was all
changed before we released 1.7. I do see some mailing list threads
that referenced it but maybe we were able to remove all those requests
from the code.

I recall this came up when I was raising the issue about the number of
requests that Serf makes to the server so it is possible someone
removed them.
