  Zxfer is a fork of zfs-replicate. It allows the easy and reliable backup,
  restore or transfer of zfs filesystems, either locally or remotely.
  Zxfer has the following features:
    * Written in sh with only one dependency, rsync. Rsync mode is not used
        in a typical restore, hence in that situation all you need is the
        zxfer script, your backup and an install CD/DVD.
    * Reliability is first priority - the only methods of transfer allowed
        are those that checksum/hash the transferred data.
    * Transfer to or from a remote host via ssh.
    * Recursive and incremental transfer of filesystems (via snapshots).
    * Transfer properties and sources of those properties (e.g. local or
    * Override properties in the transfer, e.g. for archival purposes
        it is useful to override "copies" and "compression".
    * Create all filesystems on the destination as necessary.
    * Write backup files to aid in automatically restoring the original
        properties that have been overridden.
    * A comprehensive man page with examples.
    * Can be set to beep on error or when done, useful for long transfers.
    * Features an rsync mode for when two different snapshotting regimes are on
        source and destination, and zfs send/receive won't work.
