I'd like to see if I can come up with some search scripts for this kind 
of thing and others like it.
One can certainly create a list of items on a page, get the text, delete 
the text and insert new text. Even just a grep-like function might be nice.

Alternatively, a script to automatically insert page numbering frames 
when something unusual is desired might also be a useful approach.

A third approach might be to write a program in Perl, Python, whatever, 
to do surgery on a Scribus file, maybe creating a backup of the original 
for safety's sake.
