OK - so on the older system, if I wanted to take a snapshot of, say /usr/
local/etc, I would have to snapshot /usr (/usr being the upstream 
mountpoint). So now, if I want a similar snapshot of /usr/local/etc, any idea 
what the path would be? Can't do /usr, it's no longer a mountpoint. 
Ditto /usr/local. Snapshoting "/" maybe? Would that no longer capture the 
entire pool? Hmmmm....

Thanks for the reply. It's greatly appreciated.
