For a critical component like a filesystem, it should be considered
not working until really tested and proven otherwise for anything not
beeing a test machine that is ready for beeing wiped. You might not
care for your personal box... others do... others also run "production
machines". It is not about beeing scared but having realistic
expectations of code that hasnt seen field testing at all.

kind regards,
