Sneaky devil, and after I spent most of Sunday trying to apply the big 
patch by hand to the most recent version of -current possible! Great job 
with this, though. ZFS support has to be one of the best features to work 
on from the viewpoint of users, and has a huge impact.

On a serious note, what kind of test data would you like to have other 
than general "it's more stable now" feedback? Do you think the new code is 
any more likely to destroy all of our data the the old?

Again, great work!
