Well, we have one already - it's called PostgreSQL :)

The thing is we're doing some fairly complex things as we start up. And
since we don't know exactly what the problem is, we don't know what to
look for. We'd have to run the whole thing over again... And still not
be able to point out *what* is the problem, since we don't know...

What we could do is some small tool that looks for filter drivers and
throws out a warning about it. But I'm not sure if that will make things
better - it'll warn on known things like antivirus, but if people don't
read the documentation/FAQ/lists about that, will they download a
separate tool and run it?
