Bad plan,
Buy yourself a decent camera now, either the Canon S series or another super zoom would work good. You can take perfectly good pictures with it, i had have 200 shots in the database, never used a SLR. Once you know how to use light and compose a picture and can take good shots with the Point n shoot, you can buy a SLR if you so choose, and by that time you will have money for one and a decent lens more than likely.
The FZ35 does like a good camera and maybe better than the SX20/10, the ISO performance does look to be better from the reviews. The one thing i really do like about the S series though is the tilting screen (well i did till mine shorted out and now everything is in red o vision, pro turns into a con if that happens), the use of AA batteries (When the battery indicators starts flashing as you hear TFM SD70MAC's roaring in the distance you know what i mean) and that the controls are pretty similar to what you will find on a Canon SLR making the step up easier.
If you want to go for a SLR and you have the means to do so, by all means do it. For some reason people think a SLR is needed to take good pictures, far from the case, its the photographer not the camera. I had a friend who until recently was using a Kodak clickbox digital camera and was taking pictures the same quality as a SLR, me and most people who had seen his shots were astounded if not actually mad at what he was using.
