Out of curiosity, why would one want to do this?

Also, you can always mount an ext3 drive as ext2 just by specifying the
type.  In fact, I think mount will autodetect ext3 as ext2 -- you have
to explicitly ask for ext3-mounting.

Unless you need to share ultra-sensitive super-spy stuff with me, please
don't email me directly.  I will most likely see your post before I read
your mail, anyway.
