Removing duplicate block definitions and Cad Text

I think that the project cleanup tool is brilliant and use it a lot, but one of the things I wish it would do is remove duplicate CAD Text and block definitions.

 

The problem i have is that a lot of the CAD imports I do, especially for updates to engineering layouts, import into the same layers as the previous iteration. The duplicate lines get removed using the project cleanup but the duplicate CAD text and blocks stay.

 

I don't like deleting the previously imported version of the CAD file because quite often I have done hours or even days worth of work using the information.
