Yes, and I just posted a brief report on my experience with
this today, with the same thread subject line.

Other than the fact that Giorgos had forgotten three keystrokes,
which I corrected in my "one for the archives" post this morning,
I have a feeling my 12-year-old son, or at least my college age
"apprentice" could have cloned a FreeBSD installation in a relatively
short period of time with dump | restore.

Or maybe a trained monkey.  Nah, nevermind....
