If you're talking about either dtrace or ZFS:
1) The features are highly desirable and no more suitably licenced
   alternative is available now or likely to become available in the
   near future.
2) It is not part of the GENERIC system and will remain optional due to
   the license.
3) In the case of dtrace, licensing issues have delayed its implementation
   by at least a year.

Please excuse any delays as the result of my ISP's inability to implement
an MTA that is either RFC2821-compliant or matches their claimed behaviour.
