Can you import it booting from a newer kernel (say liveDVD), and allow
that to complete the deletion? Or does this not help until the pool is
upgraded past the on-disk format in question, for which it must first
be imported writable?  

If you can import it read-only, would it be faster to just send it
somewhere else?  Is there a new-enough snapshot near the current data?
