Two reasons against renaming:

- we call it fsck-objects for a reason. We are working on a file system,
which just so happens to be implemented in user space, not kernel space.
If lost+found has to find a new name, so does fsck-objects.

- lost+found has a special meaning, granted. So, a backup would not be
made of it. So what? I *don't* want it backup'ed. I want to repair what
was wrong with it. When I repaired it, the result is stored somewhere
else. To backup lost+found would make as much sense as to backup /tmp.
