Then...I guess I don't understand what the kerfuffle is all about.
Those who are bothered as I am by zfs can do it the way they like and
not have to deal with it; those who aren't can do it the way _they_
like.  Sounds to me good all around.

Unless I've Missed Something (which seems reasonably likely)....

Though it seems like a good discussion in that some real progress was
made, in that the lack of a "noerror" or "allowfail" or whatever flag
in fstab was highlighted and may someday get added.  I'm tempted to try
doing it in my own code trees....
