ae@ is working on geom-ifying and adding support for ZFS to sade.
I've started working on making sysinstall grok geom, but getting it to
the stage of understanding ZFS is a long way away, and will need new
partitioning code based around gpart. I believe the plan for 9.0 is to
have pc-sysinstall from the PC-BSD project be available as one of the
installers; the backend has already been committed and there's work
going on to add an ncurses frontend.
