I think you'll need to add more detail about the individual steps you
plan to take, how long they'll take, and how you plan to implement them.
Take a look at Janito's[1] and my[2] proposals for ideas.

The BtrFS format is basically 99% complete, so implementing it might be
reasonable. I'm thinking of proposing this myself.
