Description

The "used" and "written" properties could be described better by the zfs.1m manpage.

"written" could be better described as "The amount of space referenced by this dataset, that was written since the previous snapshot (i.e. that is not referenced by the previous snapshot)."

The "used" section needs more work, but at a minimum it could say that the "used" space of a snapshot is the space unique to the snapshot (i.e. the space referenced only by this snapshot). The "used" space of a snapshot is a subset of the "written" space of the snapshot.
