Description

"ztest" for ZFS conflicts with "ztest" from Zutils (http://www.nongnu.org/zutils/zutils.html)

Letter "z" is more appropriate for archives, than for ZFS.

There is another tool called zfstest as well. I am not sure what the right resolution here is. Do we really need "ztest" from the compressed tools to be available in /usr/bin?

  1. Move ztest away into, say, /usr/lib/, and call it from zfs as zfs test
  2. Rename to testzfs, zetaste, zprobe, depending on its purpose and mental health.

Why do we care about some third party stuff more than about something native? i.e., just rename the "ztest" from Zutils

Letter "z" is more appropriate for archives, than for ZFS.

How so?
