What I was trying to do was to allow for pasting a frame with contents 
or other objects on multiple pages. It seems to me this would work best 
as a new "Multiple Paste" function, or perhaps from the Scrapbook, with 
a dialog to allow placing a Scrapbook item on multiple pages at one go.

The modified Scripter commands that I made work, but it does seem this 
should be something on the main screen.
