zfs set allows only one dataset property to be set at a time
Using 'zfs set' to modify multiple properties is clumsy, since it only allows one property to be specified per invocation. Since you have to wait for the next snapshot after each invocation, this can be pretty slow when setting a number of properties.
It would be nicer if 'zfs set' mirrored the behavior of 'zfs get' and supported taking a list of properties instead of just one, setting them in one ioctl call.
