I'm not sure there would be many that would work in this way, and it 
gets complicated when you have input from more than one source. 
Considering that you can name saved files anything you want, why not 
name a variation of the frame name? Such as text2.txt? Or something more 
complicated if you want it to be unique to a given Scribus file.
