Is there a document somewhere documenting all the "gotchas" on doing a
FreeBSD 13.0 binary upgrades now-a-days?
*) additional zpools won't auto-import on boot until
'freebsd-update' is run again after boot to install new userland.
(Bad news if you leave your home directories on a secondary zpool and
don't have access to console and have best practice of not allowing root ssh in).
*) Zpools probably need to have 'zpool upgrade' done on them.
*) Make sure to re-install your boot loader before you
`zpool upgrade zroot` to not break bootloader.
*) /etc/motd has a new mechanism, look at /etc/motd.template instead.
