 How about "it should behave like TFM(tm) says"?  Or, alternitively "it should
 behave like it has the last 15+ years"?  That has worked satisfactorily
 for me.
 youll-thank-me-later!bad 109 % uname -r; grep xbd0a /etc/fstab; sudo fsck -p /
 /dev/xbd0a      /       ffs     ro
 /dev/rxbd0a: file system is clean; not checking
