While 10 drive raidz1 is not most optimal, it is still pretty close to

Pretty close is not really much better than any other imperfect value.
This is because ZFS stores data in vriable length stripes that can
only be powers of 2 <= 128KB. This means that you should keep your
RAIDZ's small and close to the optimal data+parity disk counts.

Then again, any RAIDZ[123] is going to be slow enough that you
probably won't be able to tell much difference (much like RAID[56]).
