Why skip 3.4?  That Plone 2.5 was a major release was quite nasty, it  
confused people about what was a major release and what isn't.  We've  
made a commitment to 3.x being stable, I think we should keep to it.   
Releasing a Plone 3.5 would confuse the matter.

However, it would be interesting to open the new features to a wider  
audience ASAP.  I'd be in favour of this if:

- It wasn't called Plone 3.x or 4.x (Dunno what though)
- We maintained 3.x as officially supported
