Well, if you're doing initial imports on a "bad" filesystem, you can have a
bad experience - which is not good, even more if it's the first try and
you "fail".

Especially with fsvs, where the first real commit can easily be some hundred
thousand inodes, it would be better to have *that* problem eliminated.
