I wouldn't. From http://e2undel.sourceforge.net/usage.html

 In general, ext2 and ext3 are compatible file systems: You
 can mount an ext3 fs as ext2 and even use the ext2 low level
 utilities like debugfs. However, ext3 behaves in a different
 manner in one crucial point: If a file is deleted, its inode
 data are removed, too. Especially, the list of data blocks
 is lost; so it is not possible to recover any deleted file.
