Stop ZFS/opensolaris from autoloading?

Short of renaming the modules (which breaks upgrades and is unpredictable) 
is there any easy way to stop a system from auto-loading the ZFS modules?

We've got some memory-constrained systems and the concept of "modules that 
load themselves" somewhat bugs me.

I'd rather "zpool status" (which is often called by things like Facter) simply 
return an error than load a kernel module that will never be used.
