There is a Darwin (and OS X) compatible shell utility named "Testdisk" which is menu driven (text) and free/opensource which recovers deleted partitions, lost files.
Have tested on OS X 10.4.8 running under OS X Terminal, there are no visible problems.
Utility is highly mature and completely opensource.
I think it should be included as an "optional install" just like Memtest. If size is problem (660kb current in tar.bz2), it should be at least linked from Applejack site.
