True and Alpine Linux supports (3.5) ZFS on install which I didn't confirm
because, like I said, I don't use ZFS on Linux. I mean that if Arch
ZFS developers want to, they can leverage work from other distros.
I guess it's a good thing Arch has no installer or otherwise there
might be a heated debate whether ZFS should be an option :).
