I haven't had much luck running ZFS under heavy load on 7-stable, I was
forced to install 8-current and use the latest patch set posted by pjd.
Don't jump in until you've tested it with a realistic production load.
The nice thing was that 8-current didn't require any special kernel or
memory tuning at all (except for disabling ZIL, but not everyone seems
to have to do this).

As far as I know ZFS does not support ACLs under FreeBSD at this time,
and implementing it is non-trivial.
