Ah thanks for the info. I've already left that configuration behind. 
freebsd-update tossed in bootpool in the going back and forth I mentioned 
earlier. I spent some time trying (without any success) to figure out how I 
broke booting to single user mode. I've reinstalled from a REL 12.1 image. 
It's time to do some actual work on this system. I found the 12.1 guided 
install pretty logical. I will try to figure out later if one-size fits all 
is the right way to go if one does not work for yahoo or netflix.

ZFS mastery is not as hard to read as the derivation of the universal 
constant, but close enough :)
