on the interesting side, the fact that you can now buy _very_ high speed drives (up to 64G of battery backed ram fast enough that it needs multiple SATA cables to saturate it) means that variations on the space allocation policies can lead to very significant speed-ups.
however, on the scary side, you have the fact that you now need all these different drives to remain operational and available or you run the risk of loosing everything.
a follow-up for after btrfs gets going solidly and reliably would be to look into a multi-drive version that could maintain multiple copies of metadata on different drives
