Enhance the "PRAGMA integrity_check" command to verify that all indices are correctly constructed. New calls to integrity_check are made in the test suite. These changes are intended to prevent any future problems such as seen in ticket #334. (CVS 1024) check-in: c9734c27 user: drh tags: trunk

align table data to be contiguous, and otherwise clean up the database 
file structure.  The index or table name argument is now ignored.</p>

command has no effect on an in-memory database.</p>
