Isn't tuning ZFS by hand exactly opposite of what it was designed for? I remember Jeff Bonwick saying something along those lines.

In a way it's :) Also in most cases you don't need to do any tuning at all. However there're corner cases when it's useful. The goal with ZFS is not to force a user to do any tuning in 99.99% cases. But we're not there yet.
