IRC says yes... Server's still up, so to prevent potential failure, uh, what shall I do? :$

Unmount that drive ASAP (I'll assume you already did). Hopefully, you can mount it to a directory and see if your data is still there. If your data is not there, you might be screwed.

Amazing how much of a flick of the wrist going the wrong way as root can completely mess a server. Any way to just bust in the emergrency disk and convert the partition back to ext2?

(Server offline until then.)

No that will really screw you, formatting with an FS deletes everything on the partition. I really doubt you have anything left after the mkswap
