Well let me pose a question to you then. I'm planning on running Mysql5 in a NGZ. The blastwave package for Mysql5 includes the SMF service definition to fire everything up. From what you described, wouldn't make more sense to use an inherit-pkg-dir since that will force the package instance to be installed in the zone as well, thus retaining all the stuff that DOESN'T reside in /opt/csw?
