Hi there,

I recently came across the "e2tools" [1] package which is basicaly like
"mtools" but for ext2. (btw I even made a Debian package [2] which is now used
by GRUB to produce these nice GRUB rescue floppies automagicaly [3])

The interesting point for the Hurd is that e2tools uses library calls in
e2fslibs to access the underlying ext2 filesystem. I don't have much clue
with filesystem implementation so this might sound silly; Would it be
feasible to rewrite the ext2fs server for using e2fslibs?

At a fast glance, I can see interesting calls like:


It'd probably be that e2fslibs brings ext3 support too..
