Does the drive fill up because of created snapshots?

As I have written in the beginning, we should distinguish between two
completely different question:

1. should btrfs be default filesystem?
2. should default configuration automatically create snapshots
(periodically or on every update)?

I still think yes to 1 doesn't automatically mean yes to 2. And while
I'm not strictly against 1 (even if I'm still probably not going to use
btrfs for my data for some time), I would consider 2 bad idea - about as
bad as when some time ago "zypper ar" used --keep-packages by default.
