FWIW, I ran btrfs (over LVM, sorry Lennart) on my home system ever since 
it became available in Fedora. I have seen weird performance issues 
under swapping load that I couldn't measure with my inferior system 
tuning chops (the pinnacle of my effort was running iotop), but it's 
been solid otherwise.

I was planning to upgrade to F19 soon, and I kind-of care about the data 
on that system (I have backup, but corruption would not be welcome, just 
for the lost time reason). Do people recommend sticking with it? holding 
off the upgrade? switching back to ext4?
