Yeah, but the 1974 UNIX came up twice faster than the 1994 UNIX comes up once

(My own favorite scheme for this is to have a dedicated miniroot on the disk
that gets used when the main root needs checking.  While it suffers both from
the double-boot problem and from wasting 1-2MB of a disk, it has the
advantage of making it much easier to recover from a thoroughly curdled main
root partition.  Of course, choosing which root partition to use at boot
time is currently a bit difficult.)
