Sadly, this won't work instead of a journaling filesystem - fsck still 
needs to run on the whole filesystem after a crash.

Also, last I heard is that Pawel (pjd) is working on a reimplementation 
of gjournal, so if anyone needs journaling-because-of-journaling you 
should probably use his version.
