Because there is no such thing as "too paranoid" for a backup tool, I
think that we should add an option to xtrabackup to be used with
--prepare. This option would start InnoDB and do a full scan of every
index in the whole database, checking for corruption. It should be
called --validate or --check-for-corruption or something like that.
Maybe we can just look at the ha_innodb.c code and see what CHECK
TABLES does, and mimic that.

Baron,

Good idea. I think this should go to bugs database and moved to BluePrint from it
