how is it better to leave people with a corrupted filesystem and no tool that can recover it than a corrupted filesystem with a tool that may fix the problem or may corrupt it more?
in the first case they will always have a corrupted filesystem, in the second case they may have a corrupted filesystem, or they may be able to recover it.
It's not as if people who fine their system is corrupted are going to keep the corrupted image around for years until a fsck program is available (and for that matter, without something to check the filsystem, how will they even know that it's corrupted?
