Took a while but finally found time to experiment. My attempts to use BTFS
were met with filesystem corruption that I eventually traced to a defective
DIMM. Once bitten, twice shy and all that, I decided to give zfsonlinux +
ecryptfs a go. Although it worked well ecryptfs made the snapshots
difficult to work with.
So I finally took the plunge and, despite the warnings on doom on the
Interwebs, went for zfsonlinux + luks. It feels faster than using ecryptfs
and also the previous mdadm RAID6 with ext4 setup and the auto-snapshot
feature is simply amazing! :)
