Sorry, I disagree. This pkg base is independent of the ZFS tool we're using
to wrangle boot-environments. Hence why it wasn't mentioned in the CFT.
These base packages work the same as existing in-tree pkg base on UFS, no
difference. If anything are probably safer due to being able to update all
of userland in single extract operation, so you don't have out of order
extraction of libc or some such.
