[PLUG] undo mkfs?

Is there any way to undo an errant mkfs.ext3?  When deleting some other
partitions, I hadn't noticed that what was once hde3 had been made hde2
upon exiting cfdisk.  I executed mkfs on the wrong partition.  Haven't
written anything else to it.  Is there anyway to recover the data?
