The CollabNet binaries include Serf.

Unfortunately, you heard wrong. Serf is not faster. It's goal is to
get "close enough" in speed to Neon to be a good alternative.

Serf does use a different architecture (lots of plain GET requests)
that could theoretically provide performance benefits if you go
through a caching proxy server (and other users have already done
similar requests to prime the cache).
