implemented in the current development version!
(even better than what you are suggestion :-)

putting the images in the scrapbook and then pasting in place (paste to page) may help here...

i don't see why it should be messed up... just copy the first page at the end, then copy the second page to the end and so on...

if you don't have too many pages it should be manageable...

an alternative would be to create a manageable number of pages and save it as a "temporary" .sla document.
then go back to you main document and import those pages from the document...

you may also duplicate the temporary document and import into one of them the pages of the second, duplicating that way the number of pages....

voilà, i wish you good luck!
