I'm tempted to set up a second ZFS pool for booting since my main one is
RAIDZ2, which it currently unsupported; this is with some trepidation as I
read ages back that there may be "issues" with multiple pools (though that
may be in the past, whatever it was) but it'll be interesting to find out.
Then again, "if it ain't broke, don't fix it": maybe I should just stick
with the regular boot system using my gmirrored UFS partition...
