Yes, there is an item in the wiki for zfsboot with a big finger
pointing at Doug Rabson (cc'd) but I don't know the status of the
task.
I was using the /boot on small ufs partition method to boot my raidz
but upgraded my machine and added a 1TB disk to the mix. I'll be
booting from a usb pen with root on zfs.
As soon as zfsboot works I'll ditch the usb pen.

Doug, can you provide some status update on zfsboot? Do you need help
on something?
