	As far as I can see both work just fine. The first has the benefit
that it puts your ZFS exports in the standard place for exports and won't
need fiddling with if you decide that you want to move one of them to some
other filesystem. The second has the benefit that it integrates better with
the ZFS tools.

	The one thing you don't want to do is put the same export in both.
