It wraps zfs, zpool, and newfs. It does talk directly to GEOM (through libgeom)
-- but so does the gpart command-line tool. The point is just that all
partitioning tools and disk setup tools should have the same default behaviors.
If we don't like those defaults, we should change them. And, since we control
the whole operating system, we can! Why should we work around bad defaults in
the system in one particular piece of software that people use exactly once per
installed system, but leave the normal tools they use repeatedly set up in a
way that can give bad performance?

If this is a real problem, we should fix it across the board. Hacking up the
installer is not the right solution.
