ZFS-centric backup tool

ZnapZend is a ZFS centric backup tool. It relies on snapshot, send and recieve to do its work. It has the built-in ability to manage both local snapshots as well as remote copies by thinning them out as time progresses.

The ZnapZend configuration is stored as properties in the ZFS filesystem itself.
