Sure, but in the previous examples, I did *not* use the ZFS filesystem 
part; rather, I used it as a logical volume manager to carve out block 
devices to be used by other, traditional filesystems.

The entire discussion stems from the idea to let thinp reserve some 
space to avoid a full pool, by denying new snapshot and volume creation 
when a free space threshold is crossed.
