I'll beat John Culleton to the punch and point out that TeX has this 
built-in, but Scribus does not.

Thinking about it, though, I wonder if some modification of the Find 
function might accomplish this, by searching for a particular Paragraph 
Style that might be unique various headers, then creating a list from 
that. It's not accessible from Scripter.

There may be some variably complex workarounds too, which could benefit 
from having the original text done in OpenOffice.
