Oops sorry, the answer is probably in this mail below, I didn't realize
it was so recent. I'm not in a rush since most of my systems will be a
standard mirror which I already know works.

This is a limitation which I will remove as soon as I have a little time
to work on it.
I will simply remove this limitation for FreeBSD since we can now boot
from any pool configuration.
