I should say that I'm going to focus on grub2 for Btrfs support, so if
Fedora wants to move to Btrfs as the default then either

1) Fedora will have to keep /boot around with ext*
2) Fedora will have to move to grub2
3) Fedora will have to maintain the btrfs filesystem support for grub1

So really the grub2 thing isn't that big of a deal for me, because one
way or the other I'm not doing the work to make sure it's working in
Fedora, beyond making sure it works in grub2.  Thanks,
