The images are produced from a separate Hurd sub-archive and manual
intervention is possible after this has be created.

This means that a more functional e2fsprogs could be substituted at this
stage.  Which should I use?

It would be relatively easy to move the generation of the sub-archive from
unstable to testing.  However, would new Hurd packages make it into
testing as quickly as unstable?
