I know ZFS would need a decent amount of RAM to start with. So for such low sized 
SBC systems, like Raspberry PI having ZFS for root might be no go.

What I meant was: how complicated would be right now for FreeBSD 12 to have an 
ARM64 RBPI3B+ image image which could use ZFS to boot from a SD Card.
