Not yet, btrfs in 10.04 was 0.19-8 and that didn't include the -D option
to btrfsctl, so you couldn't remove snapshots. I have not yet bothered to
check if the version in 10.10 has fixed that. If it's included, then I may
experiment a bit with btrfs, but I probably won't switch completely to
btrfs until 11.04 or 11.10.
