ra_serf definitely supports SSL client certs and SSPI/NTLM. (ra_neon
does kerberos and Digest auth, but ra_serf doesn't.)

The only major bug that I don't really care to fix is that some busted
HTTP/1.0 proxies (such as old versions of Squid) don't like seeing
Transfer-Encoding: chunked HTTP/1.1 requests. Though someone seems to
want to fix that on serf-dev@. (More power to 'em.)

Besides pipelining, ra_serf uses multiple HTTP connections for update
which can help dramatically in some cases. (Especially when the other
server is beefy enough to truly handle concurrent requests.) --
