Thank you Rahul for quick reply, I have used btrfs and quite liked it,
had no problems with it so far, but agree with your caution - until
there are tools that support fixing issues it is better to be safe

Do you have some insight when will livecd-creator and other tools
support creating btrfs live images? Is it possible already but just
not recommended?
