That's much better served by the LVM work, IMO.

I don't understand why a logical volume manager that requires a pile of
GPLed code for practical use is a better alternative for this than zpool.

Heart of LVM is device-mapper and not userland gpl code we can write our
own tools if we can't use gpl one. We can use both linux and NetBSD LVM
together on different PV/VG/LV's (like linux use lvm1 and lvm2 volumes).

We already have GPL code in a base system and it is not problem for us.
To get LVM working we need one library(libdevmapper) and one tool(lvm).
It is not too much I think.
