These aren't for the power users, which will consciously pick the
filesystem they like best. Default filesystems are for the granny and
the newbie, those that cannot and will not fix low-level filesystem

I haven't used BtrFS recently, but unless it's granny-proof, I'd think
twice before making it default.

+1. Changing the default to btrfs is going to increase the number of
people having problems posting in the forums. It still seems to be
considered "unstable" or "experimental", and if so, shouldn't be selected
as the default.
