I'm trying to learn ZFS and beadm. I wanted to do a proof-of-concept, so I 
ran 'beadm create <instance>', then ran 'beadm activate <instance>'.

I then installed something from ports (in this case, zfs-stats). I 
reactivated the default instance in beadm and rebooted. BUt I am still 
seeing zfs-stats installed.

In my understanding of beadm, shouldn't the machine be in the state it was 
prior to the zfs-stats install?

  and you're to blame                         ooh heaven is a place on earth
  darling you give love                  they say in heaven love comes first
  a bad name                              we'll make heaven a place on earth
