A new concept in Computer Science

I was chatting with a friend of mine, and he was showing me a quine he had written in Python. I then asked him to write a validating quine. I had made it up on the spot, but it basically is a quine that validates itself as being a quine.

I am not entirely sure it is possible, but my friend was going to make the attempt. If he succeeds he will be the first person to write a validating quine, and I will post it here. An honor any geek would love to possess. I wish him well.
