Some of my deployments have hundreds of filesystems in
an organized hierarchy, with delegated permissions and automated
snapshots, send/recvs, and clones for various operations.

what kind of zpool do you use in the guest, to avoid unwanted additional redundancy?

did you benchmark the space or time efficiency of ZFS vs. UFS?

in some bsd related meeting this year i asked allan jude for a bhyve level null mount, so that we could access at / inside the guest some subtree of the host, and avoid block devices and file systems altogether. right now i have to use nfs for that, which is irritating.
