Any reference to the in-depth technical details? Any docs on how it is implemented would be useful.

The OpenSolaris source code is available. I dont know if IPS package system code is available?

Anyway, this rocks. Hard. Before every install, it gets snapshot. And each snapshot are shown in GRUB. I just choose which snapshot I want to boot into.

Also, Nexenta has this. It is Ubuntu, but with OpenSolaris kernel. You have ZFS, DTrace, etc with Ubuntu userland.
