For something like Gentoo that uses rolling releases, a system drive
might be one of btrfs's better use cases anyway.  All those instant
snapshots can be very handy when managing upgrades/etc.  I'm not sure
I'd even go so far as to use it for that purpose yet, however, unless
I didn't mind occasional downtime and had the ability to rapidly
rebuild the server.  If you view all those snapsnots as a great way to
manage all the extra backups you'll be doing, then maybe it might work
out.
