> This option is dangerous. It sounds so good though that people are quick to use it, but
it definitely drops entire segments.
> The commandline flag should be someting other than -fix (e.g. -exorcise).
> I dont agree with the current description of the option either. True, it does have **WARNING**
but I think it should read more like the scary options in 'man hdparm'.
> Like hdparm, we could fail if you provide it with an even more ridiculous warning, and
make you run again with --yes-i-really-know-what-i-am-doing as well.
