No, but a read-only driver wouldn't be that hard, given the fact OpenSolaris has released code allowing to mount, open and read ZFS under the GPLv2 in its grub extensions.
Well, I suppose I could dual boot into ClosedSolaris anytime I wanted to write data to a disk. ;-)
Yea, thats too bad. Good info on the read only code, though - thanks

You won't have to. Just run Solaris in a Xen, Qemu or whatever virtualization software you pick.
