The Current Ubuntu ZFS driver (in the repository) is one step behind the
hipster variant, I cannot currently mount my hipster partition when I've
booted Ubuntu on the same computer ...

Indeed it does, superior is a strange way of putting it, but that is how it
appears to be ...

It is good, but I have do have issues occasionally (tending towards
usually) where it compile the SPL after the ZFS, which causes the ZFS to
fail until I reinstall it after a reboot.

With the ZFS in the kernel, it does allow me to have a ZFS boot partition,
which I couldn't trust on an Ubuntu installation.
