You are aware that there's a real in-kernel ZFS implementation under
Linux now, right? See http://zfsonlinux.org/. I've done some very
basic testing with it, and so far, it works. Going through FUSE is
slower than pissing tar; this implementation won't have that problem.
FUSE is useful for many things. Performance-sensitive filesystems on
production servers is oh-so-NOT one of them. ;)
