I'm just hoping to have my understanding confirmed. Let's say I have a
file system:

# zfs create tank/fs

I then copy some files into it...

# cp /usr/include/* /tank/fs/

I then create a clone of the file system:

# zfs snapshot tank/***@pointintime
# zfs clone tank/***@pointintime tank/fsclone

and make some changes to the clone...

# rm /tank/fsclone/g*

If I now destroy the clone and the snapshot that was used to create
the clone

# zfs destroy tank/fsclone
# zfs destroy tank/***@pointintime

then the original file system (tank/fs) is unaffected by all my
mucking around with the clone; correct?
