[suggestion] IndexFile validation

From: Philip Mak <pmak(at)>
Date: Sun Apr 29 2001 - 06:44:47 GMT
Suggestion: Check that the IndexFile (specified in the configuration file)
is valid and writable before starting to read the files to be indexed.

Instead of reading all the files for a few minutes, then dying with
swish: Couldn't write the index file "...".
