I have the practice of making my backup process compare the archive to the original, and once it caught a flakey memory chip that memtest86 couldn't find. I know it was a flakey memory chip because the problem went away when I replaced the memory chip. I had to use trial-and-error and the nightly backup procedure to discover which one to replace.
So I hope fsarchive eventually gets this feature. I suppose that's in the plan, since you mention elsewhere that you want to give fsarchive most of the features of tar, but I wanted to say that this one was particularly important.
Please ask questions here if you are not familiar with fsarchiver
