I was actually considering this but then came news that Oracle was
killing OpenSolaris and likely to be pushing OCFS so decided I
probably don't want to have something come bite me a year or two down
the road. I'm not sure how things developed since then though.

But based on your recommendation and Christopher Chan's, it would seem
like you guys don't think that long term support/updates would be an
issue for ZFS?
