Oopsie :)

Seeing I for one will have no backups, I think I won't be using v28 on
this box, and stick with v15 instead.

Are there any views regarding the "best" implementation for a system ?

I currently have a ZFS only system but I'm planning on moving it to UFS,
with ZFS used only for mass storage.

I understand ZFS root is much trickier, and my main fear is that if I
somehow break ZFS (by upgrading to v28 for example) I won't be able to
boot anymore, thus no repair process...
