3.4.x should be imported into -current when it becomes stable enough.
Currently there are some problems with the ftp proxy due to tighter
security checks in the wake of the ftp kernel-proxy `exploits'.  In
part it's out now because someone (hi Bernd :-) has been on my butt
every day for the last month asking where it is.

3.5 will not be ready until well after 1.5 (it is only currently 3.5alpha3,
not beta).

If you want to use 3.5alpha3, you should just be able to do "BSD/kupgrade"
and rebuild your kernel.
