If you want to nuke *all* of your archives, you don't need to run --fsck.
You only need to have a synchronized cache directory for creating new
archives or deleting *individual* archives (since that's how tarsnap
figures out which blocks are no longer needed -- not an issue if you ask
to delete everything).
