It's a great article, but people that aren't very familiar with
filesystems and the filesystem tools are going to read the article, look
at their tools, scratch their heads, decide the whole thing is too hard,
and go on making the same mistakes. It would be useful if actual command
arguments could be given for various sane defaults.
