--As for the rest, it is mine.

I've only tried NFS, but it's fairly easy.  Either of these are controlled 
by ZFS properties, set by the command `zfs set` with the property names 
being  'sharesmb' or 'sharenfs'.  The value of the property is the options 
you want to use for the share.

See `man zfs` for more detail, plus the docs for the type of share you 
decide to set up for the options.
