Description

Currently zfs send produces send streams that are very specific to zfs. A mode should be added to generate a stream that is also useful on other platforms. A possible stream format could be the format used by btrfs send.

I see that there was some work toward this goal done in Oct 2012, culminating in this webrev:

and a preliminary code review by Matt Ahrens:

Did this go anywhere after that?

We've rewritten the code substantially and tested for quite some time.It works pretty well, but has a few known esoteric corner-cases that can't be handled. I will try to rebase the work to a current kernel and post it here again, so you can play with it if you like.
