Database index defragmenter


I recently came across a best practise which said – do not defragment all indexes in an SQL database. A few reasons apart fro the obvious of it being a costly transaction. Are there any tools that will let me analyse the indexes and i can choose which ones to defragment? I have started creating an application to do this which will soon be hosted on Codeplex, and yet again under the “Alter gear” project name.
