None of us is currently working on that. But it sounds like a nice
project for someone who wants to dive in and work on something cool.
I had been trying to play with btrfs on rawhide some time back for
same functionality. At that moment (0.17) or even now
btrfs-progs(0.18-3) was bit unstable to work on.
Will give it a try to port the app and work on nautilus patch to
integrate this functionality.
