Oh, if you need a safe COW filesystem today I'd definitely recommend
ZFS over btrfs for sure, although I suspect the people who are most
likely to take this sort of advice are also the sort of people who are
most likely to not be running Gentoo. There are a bazillion problems
with btrfs as it stands.
However, fundamentally there is no reason to think that ZFS will
remain better in the future, once the bugs are worked out. They're
still focusing on keeping btrfs from hosing your data - tuning
performance is not a priority yet. However, the b-tree design of
btrfs should scale very well once the bugs are worked out.
