You could, but 1.2.2 would not be the minimum required version of serf.
That makes all the difference.  serf 1.2.1 is the minimum requirement
for svn 1.8.0 (well, if you want http+https and digest auth!), so if it
_does_ turn out to be buggy, people can't just fall back on serf 1.2.0
or serf 1.1.0.  That is why the question matters: "is 1.2.1 similar
enough to 1.2.0 that a soak in which people were testing with 1.2.0 is
still valid for 1.2.1?"
