Sure, but it's kind of like testing to see if the computer is stuffed with
guacamole before doing the registration. It's hard enough (and expensive
enough in processing time and code space) to handle the normal expected
issues; it's impossible to conceive of every way an inventive (and/or
demented) user could have bollixed up his system.
