Destroys ZFS snapshots

zsd ZFS snapshot destroyer is a zfs8 wrapper to destroy snapshots on a given dataset using a more convenient interface.

The number of snapshots to destroy can be specified directly, or indirectly by specifying the number of snapshots that should be kept.

It goes nicely with zogftw’s zogftw_snapshot_successfully_sent_hook to grow a certain number of snapshots on new datasets while keeping the number of snapshots on old datasets constant.
