On ipfilter: Is any upgrade on the netbsd-4 branch planned before release?

The reason why I am asking is that on a filtering router @work running
netbsd-4, I see weird stalls with NFS connections and stateful rules -
netbsd-3 machines lock up with more than one mount and have to be rebooted.
NFS mounts from linux 2.6.18 machines to a netbsd-3 server don't work at
all, unless I switch to stateless rules, and even then I see occasional
stalls (and locking problems, but these may be an NFS incompatibility
rather than an ipfilter issue).

I'd have send-pr'ed, but the picture is really too incoherent to make head
or tails of, unless I sink an amount of time there that I really do not
have right now.
