[PVE-User] btrfs in a guest

Just a quick question: I am building a new samba 4.6 fileserver on 
proxmox with ceph storage backend. I am tempted to try btrfs as a 
filesystem for the samba shares, because of the 'previous versions' 
functionality. (btrfs + snapshots)

However... googling about btrfs/ceph etc, I'm not sure if it's a wise 
decision, and it's difficult to find info on it, as mostly the results 
are about using btrfs as storage for ceph.

So, is it a good idea to use btrfs in a guest, or better stick with (for 
example) xfs?

Have a nice sunday everybody!
