Yeah, the label of "skeptic" really doesn't fit me on this matter.  I am
100% confident that ra_serf is the right place to invest our collective
DAV-aimed energy.  It is usable for most folks right now (and has been for a
long time).  It has bugs, but then what doesn't?  The only strong sticking
point for me is the editor drive item Justin mentions above.  That's not so
much a user-facing problem, but a develop/API-usage one.
