Seriously corrupt ext3 root filesystem - help?



I just came back after being out for the evening. Apparently there was 
a power failure long enough to discharge the UPS completely on my Linux
box.

After powering back up, I received notice that the / filesystem needed
"manual fsck"ing.

I booted off CD and attempted to fsck. Unfortunately, everything I've
tried has proved futile and I'm _desperate_ for some help. I've google'd
for just about everything I can think of and am out of ideas.

# fsck.ext3 /dev/hda1
e2fsck 1.28 (31-Aug-2002)
Group descriptors look bad... trying backup blocks...
fsck.ext3: Invalid argument while checking ext3 journal for /dev/hda1

# debugfs -w /dev/hda1
debugfs 1.28 (31-Aug-2002)
/dev/hda1: Can't read an inode bitmap while reading inode bitmap
debugfs: open -c /dev/hda1
/dev/hda1: catastrophic mode - not reading inode or group bitmaps

# tune2fs -O ^has_journal /dev/hda1

# e2image -r /dev/hda1 -

Illegal block number passed to ext2fs_mark_block_bitmap #1027802810 for

...

Obviously the data on this filesystem is very important, and contains a
lot of 
stuff that has not been backed up (I know, I know. Lesson learned.) Is
there 
any hope of recovering the files on this filesystem?
