There is a Python script included with Scribus (in the samples
directory) called ExtractText.py. What this is designed to do is to
extract all the text from a document, along with image file names and
put this into a text file, organized page by page.

Something that could be added would be to flag duplicate image file
names, adding this information to the text file created. Alternatively,
a smaller script might just show a messageBox with any duplicates.
