Topic: Check for empty indexes when Recorder starts

I have recently seen the panic on a user's face when they start Recorder following a dictionary update and can't find any taxon occurrence records in their surveys.  Luckily the problem was just down to the fact that their IT organisation had applied the dictionary update but hadn't rebuilt the indexes.  Would it be possible (simple) to check if any of the 4 indexes are empty when Recorder starts - to avoid a similar panic and remind them the indexes need rebuilding?
