Getting libgeom support is what is currently being worked on. ZFS is
probably quite a ways down the road unless someone else steps up to help
out. That said, sysinstall is the beast that no one else wants to touch, so
don't expect this anytime soon. I'm hoping to have this done (or at least
mostly done) by 9. FWIW, I'll kick and scream before sysinstall defaults to
zfs. I'm currently planning on making zfs/gpt/etc only available from expert
