I know exactly that, and indeed, i agree.
I'm not speaking about writing a script that check everytime the
filesystem, but sometime (triggered by /forcefsck?)
The problem arise when you have on a remote site people with low
knowledge, and have to instruct them to run the kernel in
init=/bin/bash mode or in initrd 'emergency' mode, spelling all command
[ok, a remote controlled KVM switch is on the buy list ;]
With a such boot script, if a fsck was forced, and a corruption founded,
the system ask for root password and an operator find a shell with /
mounted readonly and all other system unmounted (eg, the 'normal' way
of checking eg, for EXT3; apart that for other filesystem a 'simple'
check are ever tried, and password are asked only for serious corruption
that need 'fsck -f').
A good starting point for trying a recovery.
