This is good information, and makes me feel even better about removing
the need for a btrfs command line option.

What I mean about "we're not quite there yet" is that I don't really
want to change over to it as the default in anaconda until we (1) have a
release or two with it as a non-hidden option to get some feedback, and
(2) know what our strategy with it in a greater sense is.  If it's going
to allow us to do all sorts of crazy new things, I'd like to enable the
crazy new things at the same time as we switch it in as the default.
