--As for the rest, it is mine.

Particularly in this use-case: From my reading ZFS has a performance hit 
when used as a base filesystem for NFS.  (Largely because it insists on 
*actually following* the NFS spec, and not taking some shortcuts that are 
common elsewhere...)  Not that I have tested that, even on my NFS server. 
(Which runs ZFS - there are other excellent reasons to use it, and speed 
isn't a major concern for that particular box.)
