Yes, and I think it has the right idea. The only problem is that it
has too many consistency checks, which I know for a fact that my
scenario will fail upon.

Since I've already practically lost my data, there is probably no
extra risk in disabling those checks and forcing it to do the
modificiation. Working off a dd'd image of the hd via a loopback
device minimizes any further data loss anyways.

Yeah.. uhm. That *WAS* the backup :)

Atleast I won't be making this mistake again..
