ZFS over iSCSI multipath support

are there any plans for implementing a multipath support for ZFS over iSCSI plugin? Considering ZFS on Linux project is gaining more and more traction.

As far as I'm aware there is no official multipath support yet ( according to https://pve.proxmox.com/wiki/Storage:_ZFS_over_iSCSI ) but I saw that Linux LIO/targetcli target support has been added as of version 5.3 and I saw few unoffical custom ZFS over iSCSI plugins with multipath support already developed for other vendors here and there like FreeNAS.

I'm not following devel mailing list so I don't know if this has already been added to some kind of to-do list or not.

AFAIK the iSCSI client sits in qemu for ZFS-over-iSCSI and not on the OS. If it would be on the OS, there would already be multipath support.
