If freeze and unfreeze can be used quasi-independently,
there should be a way to "recover" (unfreeze) the FSFS
repo if the script using the new API failed.

Maybe pass some string token to "freeze" and have an
API to read that token (returning NULL for non-frozen
repos). Some user-specific watchdog / recovery logic
may then decide whether to call unfreeze or not.
