"errors=remount-ro" auto fsck, then remount-rw possible?

There's a nice little article here about protecting your partitions:

Here is my fstab:
# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
# <file system> <mount point>   <type>  <options>       <dump>  <pass>
proc            /proc           proc    defaults        0       0
/dev/hda3       /               ext3    noatime,errors=remount-ro 0       1
/dev/hdc        /media/cd-rw    udf,iso9660 user,noauto     0       0
/dev/hdd        /media/dvd      udf,iso9660 user,noauto     0       0
/dev/fd0        /media/floppy   auto    user,noauto     0       0
/dev/hda6       /home           ext3    noatime,errors=remount-ro 0       2
/dev/hda5       /home/a/nobak   ext3    noatime,errors=remount-ro 0       2
#/dev/hda7      swap            swap    defaults        0       0
/dev/hda8       swap            swap    defaults        0       0
It makes sense to have your partitions remount as read-only after errors are detected, but then what? I didn't find out that anything was wrong until Firefox started locking up. Now after a good solid 37 days uptime, I was forced to reboot. <<shudder>>

Is there a way to have devices automatically fsck'd and remounted-rw? (Instead of staying read-only and having me find out later when my programs start freaking out?)
