I did read all of that, and sorry if I'm being obtuse. I think it really
makes a difference if we still intend for btrfs to be the default in the
medium term (not just in hopeful thinking). If that is the case for
workstation but server still wants XFS even then, there doesn't seem to be
any point in bothering with consistency now since it won't be consistent in
a little bit anyway. On the other hand, if server does want to go with btrfs
and relatively soon, and again if consistency is important, I'd like to push
back on *server's* decision.
Thanks for the clarification.
