Ah, I didn't realise that -- with only one version of the zfsutils
package in Wheezy, 8.3, the Break for kfreebsd <= 8.2 wouldn't leave an
installable zfsutils for anyone using those kernels.

I guess this could only work if there were separate packages available
in Wheezy at the same time, e.g.:

zfsutils-15, Provides: zfsutils but Breaks: kfreebsd <= 8.2
zfsutils-28, Provides: zfsutils

I was just thinking of the installer here.  zfsutils 8.3 seems
successful at creating a new ZFS pool and volume within d-i using
kfreebsd-8.  For partman to see the volumes, I only needed to install
zfsutils 8.2 to run 'zfs volinit' and 'zfs volfini' at the right moments.

I then ran into a new issue -- grub-probe (from 1.99-14) couldn't detect
a filesystem type for /.  grub-probe from 1.99-13 worked.

Also, I notice zfsutils 8.2 is gone from the businesscard installer
image since yesterday, but its libraries are still there.
