You should be able to find scripts on the wiki that give you the basic 
elements for this.

OTOH, if you simply copy a frame (or group) on a page, then go to as 
many pages as you like and paste, it will be placed at exactly the same 
coordinates it had on the original page.

Also, sometimes copying entire pages might make more sense, in which 
case you can do the operation in bulk.
