> Oh, and I agree we should stop telling people to create a BSD partition, but we should support it because sometimes it's necessary for a swap or a dump partition.

MBR still has a space for three more slices for swap/dump/whatever slices and
since ZFS has its own volume manager, I do not see large demand for
ZFS-inside-BSDlabel-inside-MBRslice configuration but simplier
ZFS-inside-MBRslice should be just fine.
