Comment (by MichaelPeppers):

 Replying to [comment:6 korli]:
 > I suppose we could add a "force mount read-write" option and let a power
 user live with the risk.
 Please do, users should be in control of what the system can do, even if
 it can prove harmful. After a warning and having to force such a behavior
 if anything goes south the user can only blame himself for trying anyway,
 or at least that's how I see it.

 > Is fsck actually able to fix these errors anyway?
 Yes, but not on "automatic fix" mode, so I'd have to hold "y" for like
 half an hour to take care of those.
