+1. I'm all for documenting and giving knobs to users who RTFM.

My very strong preference is that we should do the "right thing" out of the
box - and that is to use parallel updates - even against older servers.
 This has always been the behavior of ra_serf and it's definitely backwards
compatible with all 1.x servers.

If an admin doesn't like it (because of per-req authn or bad logging
subsystems or the phase of the moon), they can try to direct 1.8+ clients
away from parallel updates via the new directive/headers; but, we should
not require any configurations to do the best generically recommended
approach. -- justin
