thanks for the clarification on this, as i was a bit confused as well. :)

One question - is there a plan to rename things to not be linux 
specific, especially since it seems that this effort will result in the 
original goal of the OpenZFS repro (if I am reading things correctly)?  
Or is that not going to happen because ZoL has the most commercial backing?

It's probably a mute point - but I do take pride in the fact that 
FreeBSD has had support ZFS for so long and has allowed me to do things 
for my customers that I can't do on I guess what I'm saying 
is I hope we don't loose credit for the hard work we've put into getting 
ZFS mainstream over the years :)
