BTRFS + Gnome

What's the current status of btrfs support in Gnome and related 
applications like Gnome disk utility (  palimpsest )?

I'm a bit worried that relevant application do not properly support 
btrfs and we take a step backwards and force the novice end to the 
terminal to deal with various filesystem related stuff if we switch to 
btrfs by default ( as opposed to make the switch when the proper support 
is in relevant applications ).

Personally I have yet to see what benefits btrfs brings the novices end 
user over other filesystems that warrants us to switch to it by default.
