23.16.7 Cleaning up with index_end()

The [custom-engine.html#custom-engine-api-reference-index_end index_end()] method is a counterpart to the index_init() method. The purpose of the index_end() method is to clean up any preparations made by the index_init() method.

If a storage engine does not implement index_init() it does not need to implement index_end().
