Hi, the proposed solution on BZ entry seems somewhat too "invasive" to 
I think it generally is a good idea to warn the users about possibly 
unexptected behavior (ie: full pool).

However, for the specific use-case of taking read-only snapshots, 
something as simple as "--silencepoolsizewarn" flag (or similar 
configuration variable) would do the trick without distrupting 
legitimate warnings.
