My vote is to not restart the soak. The plan to wait to produce
1.8.0-rc3 until serf 1.2.1 is available and adjust the dependency
requirements is exactly what I was planning to do.
Given that there's a great deal of overlap in developers with Serf and
Subversion, I trust that the Serf folks can choose appropriate changes
for 1.2.1 that won't be destabilizing.
