1) file systems do not follow Moore's Law...
2) btrfs is designed as a FS for DBs... ZFS is designed as a multipurpose FS... Of course it can "leapfrog ZFS on several fronts", surely, DB related fronts... that comment from Ts'o couldn't fall further on the irrelevancy world

Truth is, everybody wants ZFS... at all cost
