You mean things can go wrong like in ext4?

"Some Funtoo core devs are using BTRFS for many months and no major
glitches have been reported so far (except an non-aligned memory access
trap on SPARC64 in a checksum calculation routine)"

Seems like there´s less scaremongering on Gentoo/Funtoo than in Fedora -at
least they´re not afraid to try new things-, maybe I should switch over now
that Fedora has become CentOS...

OK, I won´t comment further on this thread, as I think each side has stated
its views and fears.
