I don't see what the problem is.  I am perfectly content with having my
root file system on UFS2 on a pair of mirror disks.

Considering the amount of work which would be required to allow FreeBSD
to boot from ZFS (which you apparently do not appreciate), I perfectly
understand Pawel's choice.

Remember that unlike Sun, we do not make the hardware our OS runs on,
nor do we write the firmware for it.
