The F_FULLFSYNC extension "ensures that all data is flushed to stable storage”, according to the Apple documentation.
This means, to me, that it ought to be mutually exclusive with `strict sync = no`.
While `strict sync = yes` is the default, currently nothing stops someone from manually setting `strict sync = no` and `fruit: time machine` simultaneously.
I’d recommend adding a check to ensure that is the case, if we don’t want to force it.

Other than that, everything looks good.
