Having finally been able to finish the network() source and destination
drivers I declare 3.4 as feature complete, and plan to publish 3.4beta1
fairly soon. Let's say, before the winter holiday.

In hindsight, this took much longer than it should have, 3.4 has grown a
lot of interesting functionality:
  - junctions and more complicated log processing paths
  - amqp destination
  - smtp destination
  - json output and parser plugins
  - key rewriting in destination drivers (add, remove prefixes)
  - a number of new template functions (uuid, hash functions, etc)
  - a number of new parsers in db-parser (set, pcre, ...)
  - allow 32 bit message and nvpair sizes
  - improved systemd support
  - demand loaded plugins
  - plugin support for log transport protocols and the network driver to
    be able to use them easily

And other things I've probably forgot.

I have just merged Algernon's accumulated merge queue, and will probably
cherry-pick stuff before the final release and merge in the fixes from
3.3 before the beta release.

If you have stuff that you want to see in the beta, please speak up now.
Testing _before_ the beta would also be appreciated, so that the beta is
actually usable by laymen. Thanks :)

As always, the latest code is in git, Algernon builds daily snapshots.
