Bah, wrong list.

A timeline would be really nice for when this is likely to be sorted
out - higher
priority than ZFS root IMO.

The best way around this I can think of is to have a 'template' zone
for cloning on UFS that you use to build your other (ZFS-backed) zones.
Then delegate a dataset into each zone to hold the important stuff.

Come upgrade time, you drop all the 'child' zones, patch the template
and use it to re-provision the other zones. Then drop the dataset back in.

Course, it'll take a while to clone the template since it's UFS-backed...
