Checking that material names are unique before loading them

I would really like to check material names to make sure they are unique before loading them. Is there a way to do that?

AFAIK, MaterialManager::getByName will return a null MaterialPtr if it doesn't already exist. You can check that way.

Also how about?

bool doesMaterialExist = MaterialManager.Singleton.ResourceExists(materialName);
