The idea is the same as mount and its helpers - adding new fsck types
doesn't require modifying the startup scripts or fsck. Think of a system
where you have an FFS fs, an LFS fs, and perhaps an IFS fs. Each one
requires a seperate fsck, but it would be stupid to have fsck_* -p in
the rc scripts.

Eventually FreeBSD systems will have more than just FFS based filesystems
running the system, and users will want to fsck them just like a FFS
