Well, except for the quick part. ;-)
Operations like this are bound by disk speed, not code complexity or CPU time.
Unfortunately TagLib doesn't contain anything for doing authoritative
verification of mp3 files -- it mostly leaves this up to the mimetype
recognition being used by the software using TagLib. TagLib does however
contain an implementation of MPEG headers and a mechanism for finding these
in a file that could be useful in such a tool.
