      Description

      Now that files include their metadata, it would be possible to restore missing objects based on their source objects.

      So, we could re-create the WiredTiger.turtle file by scanning the WiredTiger.wt file for the relevant metadata and final checkpoint.

      Further, we could re-create the WiredTiger.wt file by scanning the source files in the database. This step would require additional information: we wouldn't know how those files are related, for example, the relationships between indexes and collections would be unknown after that recovery.
