I realized this (duh!) and adjusted accordingly. :)

I understand that this might be hard or impossible to answer but:
Can I use your script to compile and install OpenZFS, maybe even mount the 
ZEVO pools… and expect it to be stable?
I would REALLY like to have features like case insensitivity and UTF8 
normalization. Also it would be nice if the mounted filesystems were 
actually visible in volumes. :)
So.. how far has it come?
Can I use it for my iPhoto, iTunes and general file storage?
Can it be scanned by Spotlight?

Thank you, if OpenZFS is not an option for everyday use then I will go for
