Snapshots/clones + live upgrade or standard patching.
Additionally no more hassle with separate /opt /var ...

I am curious how snapshots and clones will be integrated with grub.
Will it be posible to boot from a snapshot? I think this would be
useful when applying patches, since you could snapshot / ,/var and
/opt, patch the system, and revert back (by choosing a snapshot from
the grub menu) to the snapshot if something went awry. Is this how the
zfs boot team envisions this working?

Thanks,
