So... can btrfs now be trusted to not crap itself?

What does "Well tested" mean, in this context?  Do we have data that 
shows roughly how many installs were done in Fedora-land, and how long 
they lasted?

(two of the installs in that 7 year period were mine, and ended in 
 complete filesystem loss across clean shutdown/restart cycles. Hardware 
 is still in use, and other than a failed fan, hasn't so much as 
 hiccupped since scrapping btrfs)
