Currently, extlinux does not support multi-device BTRFS volumes.  Is 
anything planned to add this support?  I believe I understand that it 
has to be a lot more complicated with multi-devices because you are 
doing the device I/O at a very low level.

However, grub2 does support booting from multi-device BTRFS volumes 
(actually subvolumes on multi-device BTRFS volumes).  I cannot be 
impossible or is this one of those "just too hard to be worth the 
effort" situations?
