Basically exploring what it would take to say gather a list of sections of the file that are referenced from the ifds, tags etc. Then ensure the strips offsets make sense and strip byte counts etc.

All too often I seem to find files that are damaged or badly written and it would be nice to have a way to verify a file - it could also aid in the security protection for LibTiff possibly?
