Btrfs is not the only filesystem without a checker, unfortunately.
UDF is in the same condition. Which is equally bad since it leaves linux without an unencumbered , vendor neutral, cross platform, filesystem (and most likely this is the reason why every linux user still sticks with FAT). And which is also sort of funny, since many people do backups on that. I wonder if this btrfs case may result in more attention from distributions at the need to invest in tools so that /all/ filesystems that are supported with R/W can be checked and in case something goes wrong some data recovery can be practiced.
