Could a subvolume-less Btrfs be more problematic than ext4?
If not, it might be a good idea to also switch to Btrfs in the installer.

I've tested Btrfs with Zstd:3 compression on a new GNOME + EXWM install:
I've achieved a stunning 30% compression like Maxim.
I must say that it's extremely useful, if not necessary, on a 60GiB SSD... :D
