Yes, my /home/me/Documents partition (actually drive) is ext4 and when I will
finally switch to btrfs (in about Fedora 17 or 18), I will have to transfer all
of my stuff onto another partition, create the new btrfs file system on the old
/home/me/Documents partition, and then move everything back (yes, I also have an
external backup drive, in case something should go wrong). Since it is only my
data (music files, pdf articles, pictures, saved youtube movie clips, etc.) on
/home/me/Documents, it is not critical to the system, so it doesn't matter if it
is not using the better file system right away (but my / system and /home/me/.*
I did this once already, about a year or more ago, when I migrated from ext3 to
ext4. It was not that bad and you only do it once. You don't need to migrate
your system, however. You can leave it, since Fedora comes out every 6 months,
so just select the preferred file system when you upgrade to the new release.
