I'm not sure why you are laughing, because you _can_ tell the FreeBSD 
Foundation how you would like them to spent your money. If you click on 
"Donate" there's a box where you can enter the project(s) you'd like to see 
Although ZFS isn't currently listed as a project, I'm sure there's enough 
interest from the community.
