There are very good reason why serious disk systems like NetApp and
IBM's boxes have a scrubber, and these reasons extend fully into machines
with a 60GB disk which is only marginally accessed.

I think diskcheckd should stay in the main system, but be turned off by
default (at least until better heuristics for default operation has 
been devised.)
