zfs send/receive as dump/restore alternative

Dear Colleagues,

I now run a couple of systems fully on zfs, and use e.g.
"zfs send -Rv zroot at 2016-10-01 > /mnt1/2016-09-25.zfs" 
for a full system backup to a remote file server.

With restore(8), I could restore any separate filesystem or even a single
file/directory from the dump, even interactively.

How would you restore a) a single dataset or b) a single file from a
replication stream package? I really need this mode of operation for
undeleting users' files etc.

Any ideas?
