Locally I have the following rc script to handle subordinate datasets of
a boot environment: http://dpaste.com/0Q0JPGN.txt
It is designed for exactly the scenario described above.
The script is automatically enabled when zfs_enable is enabled.

It would probably make sense to include the script into the OS after
some testing and a review.
