The way I read that, it's not something rsync-specific. It sounds like
btrfs would allow the generation of a list of files, which rsync (or tar,
or zip, or whatever) could accept. (Rsync obviously being the best
choice, :-) )
$ export-whatever-from-btrfs | rsync --files-from=- / backup/
$ export-whatever-from-btrfs | tar -Jcvf backup.tar.xz -T -
$ export-whatever-from-btrfs | zip -@ backup.zip

Sounds like a question for the btrfs folks.
