Anaconda does this behavior correctly with btrfs with / and /home as
separate subvolumes on the same btrfs volume. So the preservation of
/home would still work, while we get flexible storage allocation at
the volume level.
That only works as long as btrfs is the next shiny thing, or as long as
no one decides the options Fedora used to create btrfs volumes with are
crap and it’s a good idea to recreate them with new better options.
(btrfs may offer migration to new volume options like ext4 did in the
past, I still would not want anaconda to touch my existing user data
volumes, especially when doing emergency reinstalls because the kernel,
systemd, glibc or any other core component crapped itself).
