Maybe it was only me it escaped, but please note that initscripts
already Recommends e2fsprogs.

Apparently this used to be a Depends but was downgraded to Recommends
(in 2009), according to the following debian/changelog entry:

  * Reduce initscripts dependency on e2fsprogs to recomments and drop
    the versioned relation, as the version needed
    (1.32+1.33-WIP-2003.04.14-1) was included in a version before
    oldstable (Closes: #379340).

The rationale is in (but please note that
some things have changed since this discussion. For example the 'fsck'
wrapper is shipped by util-linux these days).

Maybe that should be considered good enough to just close this bug report?
