comment is DD taking too long?
revisiting this later yet: after some conversation with the author of pv, I discovered that you can avoid the speed penalty by taking dd out of the equation entirely: pv < /dev/sda > /dev/sdb works just fine, and will go every bit as fast as the underlying hardware is capable of going.

For what it's worth, I tried changing debian/install to read zfsync /usr/bin with the leading slash. Made no difference.
