Is there any possibility of getting fsck abilities built into either
the installer or the booter?  The cycle of [boot MacOS - boot MacBSD
single - fsck - fsck - ... - reboot (to MacOS) - boot MacBSD multi] is
somewhat painful.  In particular, trying to install more files on a
corrupted file system (admittedly A Bad Idea) is properly caught by the
installer, but causes an additional cycle similar to the above.
