It is faster with the zonepath on ZFS, but clones are relatively 
fast on UFS as well. At least sparse zones. On my laptop about 30 
seconds or so, last time I actually payed attention. Compared to 
five to ten minutes if not a clone. What I like about cloaning is 
that the SMF repository is copied. The initial boot of a cloned 
zone is the part I really appreciate being accelerated. Plus all 
the customizations also carried over, of course.

On ZFS, with Nevada, a snapshot and then clone is created, so it 
is very fast.
