ZFS questions

Dear colleagues,

I'm playing with ZFS thinking about future storage server
I have two questions about it (currently; a least ;-) 

1. How can one determine which portion of a provider zpool uses? It seems 
logical for me if `zpool status -v' would display this info.

2. It is also possible to expand the array by iteratively swapping each drive 
in the array with a bigger drive and waiting for ZFS to heal itself - the heal 
time will depend on amount of store information, not the disk size. 
[ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ZFS#Limitations ]

My experiments does not show that zpool size increases after set of 
`zpool replace'. Where did I went wrong?

Thanks in advance.
