Not sure where my mail from my phone went. It should be an option on PDF
export, hard coded into the export process, and definitely not a script.
There are a number of issues that need to be considered like how many
times any one particular image is used in a document etc.

FWIW, I asked about this on 19/9/2003 around when 1.1.1 was released. We
have a bug for it too.

Franz, Jean, someone else.. can you please implement this?
