Oh wow, so ZFS on a RaspberryPi actually has practical applications other than just storage

I was using it for some SSD storage for /usr/ports and things to speed up IO, but noticed that overall the system is snappier.

ZFS uses Adaptive Replacement Cache (ARC) which is much smarter about keeping things cached, especially when accessing bins and libs on slower media like an SDCARD.
