I'm strongly against this proposal. BTRFS is the most unstable file
system I ever seen. It can break up even under an ideal conditions and
lead to a complete data loss. There are lots of complaints and bug
reports in Linux kernel bugzilla and Reddit.
OTOH, I'm using btrfs on most of my machines. I had one data loss,
when RAM module went bad and caused corruption in bcache attached
to my btrfs /. It was neither fault of bcache nor btrfs.
