I would like to know if the following improvements are possible on a future
openindiana build:

1 - Increase the maximum blocksize. Right now is set at 128k but it should
be possible to increase (I would like to try 1MB as my files are usually

2 - The compression stops if the compression is not bigger then 12.5% (?).
Remove this limitation. If the file compresses, then it should be kept

3- Add lzma compression to zfs (compression is slower but higher). Following
weblink seems to discuss the possibility:


Open to discussions why the above are good or bad.
