The feature itself is "sharing via NFS/SMB/iSCSI".

So, this adds a more convenient or easier way to use a feature.

But it don't really adds a feature that was missing on Debian.
Debian already has the necessary tools to do this from many years ago.

I'm pretty sure that any sysadmin worth her salary would be able to
deploy a NFS/SMB/iSCSI share over ZFS without any problem even with
upstream ZoL + traditional tools.
