Keeping all in /opt/csw will break sparse zones. Ok, looks like we
need more engineering here. How about this?

Always refer to /opt/csw/etc/* and make /opt/csw/etc/* links to /etc/ 
That way you could overwrite them in /opt/csw/etc if necessary.

Do you use packages at all for /opt/csw? If yes, why can't you use

Best regards
