It looks all very good to my non-expert eye, except that I wouldn't
silently fall back on use_rsync=true when btrfs returns an error (line
134 of makechrootpkg): there are probably some failure cases where we
want to see the error message and not have rsync overwrite everything.

Apart from that, great job! I'm looking forward to using these feature.
