Oracle Scripting changes to multiple zone configurations in the same Global Zone

So this is Solaris 11.1. I have a Global zone that has several non-global zones running in it. I want to change the capped-memory.physical resources setting in ALL the zone configs of the running zones.

if I were to do this manually here's what I would do:

zonecfg -z zone1
select capped-memory 
set physical=16G

Here's the question,

How do I script that? Smilie

If it was a regular setting say:

then I would do something like:

for i in `zoneadm list -c|grep -v global`;
            zonecfg $i autoboot=true;

but the part I don't understand is how to do that to a subsection like

example zoneconfig:
zonename: zone1
zonepath: /zones/zone1
brand: solaris
autoboot: false
ip-type: exclusive
        address not specified
        allowed-address not specified
        configure-allowed-address: true
        physical: netx
        defrouter not specified
        address not specified
        allowed-address: x.x.x.x/24
        configure-allowed-address: true
        physical: nety
        defrouter not specified
        [ncpus: 3.00]
        physical: 10G
        [swap: 16G]
        name: zone.max-swap
        value: (priv=privileged,limit=17179869184,action=deny)
        name: zone.cpu-cap
        value: (priv=privileged,limit=300,action=deny)

You can try (didn't test it):
zonecfg -z zone1 "select capped-memory; set physical=16G; end"

surprisingly it was that easy. sometimes you can't see the trees for the forest.

I was overthinking it.
