I have had problems with this tool regarding daylight saving time 
changes and snapshot aging calculation. I wrote to the author but didn't 
get any response.
I used zfSnap (/usr/ports/sysutils/zfsnap) as a very good alternative 
for quite a long time, but now it's broken for v28 since zfs -r behavior 
for snapshots has changed. Hope there will be a fix for it someday.
