Taking a look at the handbook, it's pretty clear that
-STABLE is not an option for production boxes.
Personally, I prefer to stick with RELENG_4_6 because of
this. Then, the question is: What do I have to do with
OpenSSH? (don't tell me 2.9, I want the latest codebase
possible) The platform integration is not an issue for me
right now, as I just want the basic functionality and get
some good sleep.

I think the original question was pointing to this too,
so I rephrase: openssh or openssh-portable? or maybe
openssh 3.4 properly merged on a production codebase? and
in that case, when?
