Or should I just export my pool and do a from-scratch install of
something?  (Then recreate the users and install any missing software.
I've got some cron jobs, too.)

I have read (on the OpenIndiana site) that there is an upgrade path from what you have to OpenIndiana. They describe the procedure to use. OpenIndiana does not yet include encryption support in zfs since encryption support was never released into OpenSolaris.

If I was you, I would try the upgrade to OpenIndiana first.

The alternative is paid and supported Oracle Solaris 11, which would require a from-scratch install, and may or may not even be an option for you.
