Thanks - good.
But would it be possible in the next release to swap the content of 
CFBundleShortVersionString and CFBundleVersion?
Also, I couldn't find the same version info in 

Providing a useful numerical version number in CFBundleShortVersionString 
would allow to automatically deploy and update a MacZFS bundle using munki 
which by default compares these ShortVersionStrings to decide whether to 
update a bundle. And munki unfortunately is quite picky on how it evaluates 
version numbers - the current version string  of 'maczfs_74-3-3-0-ge37xf7b' 
certainly will not work ;)
