Thanks for the response. I don't know enough about the symantics of the device 
IDs, I hope it does not change, and that maybe zfs will see that the lun has 
grown. Seeing if you can use use a file system or file as a vdev (and can't 
they change sizes?) then you'd figure it could do the same with an array vdev. 
Especially since zfs is touted as 'dynamic' everything (unless, of course, you 
want to shrink a pool)...I will try to test it see what happens, I just have to 
find somewhere to stash another 400GB to clear off another drive in the mean 
time. If anyone has definitive knowledge and can save me the trouble, please 
chime in. Thanks.
