FWIW, I am of the same mind. So far, the 1.2.x branch on Serf contains the
following changes made since the 1.2.0 release itself:

r1881 | chemodax | 2013-05-31 09:21:20 -0400 (Fri, 31 May 2013) | 2 lines

Merge r1880 from trunk: Fix build with old Windows Platform SDK (issue #100)

r1868 | chemodax | 2013-05-21 06:16:59 -0400 (Tue, 21 May 2013) | 7 lines

On 1.2.x branch.

Merge r1819 from trunk:
  SPNego authentication optimization.
  Avoid lookup through response headers on every read.

r1865 | lieven.govaerts_at_gmail.com | 2013-05-20 10:16:16 -0400 (Mon, 20 May
2013) | 10 lines

On the 1.2.x branch:
Fix issue in serfmake where serf-1.pc is only created when explicitly invoking
'serfmake build', not when going directly to 'serfmake install'.

Applied directly to this branch as serfmake was removed from trunk.

Patch by: Gabriela Gibson

* serfmake: Add .pc file as build target for the install command.

r1864 | lieven.govaerts_at_gmail.com | 2013-05-20 09:44:26 -0400 (Mon, 20 May
2013) | 8 lines

On the 1.2.x branch:
Fix issue #95 by applying the patch attached to that issue.
Applied directly to this branch as the autoconf build files were removed
from trunk.

Patch by: Andreas Stieger

* configure.in: Add gssapi option to build Kerberos/Negotiate authn module.

r1805 | chemodax | 2013-04-23 12:11:11 -0400 (Tue, 23 Apr 2013) | 2 lines

Merge r1804 from trunk: Improve diagnostic of SSPI authentication failures.


It's not a great deal of change[1] in terms of code churn, and the fix for
issue #102 itself wasn't really all that complicated either. Fortunately,
we have the advantage that most of the Serf developership consists of
Subversioneers -- so I'll defer the "destabilizing or not" determination to
those guys.
