BTRFS tools 0.18 and FF exception...

The current version of btrfs-tools in jaunty is 0.16, which is
incompatible with BTRFS in 2.6.29 (when it's released in ~3 weeks).
Chris Mason may perform a standalone, unsupported BTRFS release for
2.6.28, so developers will be able to build this against jaunty's
stock kernel also.

Both of these paths will require the current btrfs-tools 0.18 release,
as the mkfs.btrfs 0.16 in jaunty isn't disk-format compatible.

As BTRFS support isn't provided with jaunty or it's kernel, is there
any harm in someone spining btrfs-tools 0.18 and getting it through
the feature freeze?
