Neon is the default so it is pretty unlikely someone would be using
Serf. I do not think the User-Agent identifies which library is used.
 It does however, tell you if SVNKit is being used.

The request pattern in the logs between Serf and Neon is very
different and that would be the main giveaway. An update with Neon is
mostly a single large REPORT request. With Serf it is a small REPORT
request followed by a GET for each resource you need to update.
