What was weird is that debootstrap kept trying for a -9, while I could
see and download the -10... something must have been cached somewhere
I didn't find.

No proble-m just a warning to other to be careful and always
double-check that kind of stuff before upgrading.
Fortunately, I hadn't upgraded those packages on my ext4 install.

That hadn't been needed in ext4, and I had no network so I assumed it
was something else...
But assumption is the mother of all f*ck-ups :-) Turns out I had
forgotten to propagate the network config from the ext4 install this
time, and yes I needed the console parameter :-)

I have mutiuser on the ZFS Root install now :-)

Cordially & thanks for your help,
