I'm not quite sure that this is the simpliest way. In CCHOST there are still 
no thumbnails and no library browser (lots of thumbnails on one page) so 
chasing duplicates will be a very long and difficult task because it will 
require to open each single SVG file, and remember if this file resembles to 
something already listed in the library.
I have already been in a situation like this in the everyday cleaning 
process I'm involved in, when an uploader (Machovka) reuploaded several 
duplicates of cliparts he uploaded a week before. I was lucky to remember 
that I already saw these cliparts before, and managed to find and delete the 
Unfortunately CCHOST don't have instruments to easily locate duplicates (no 
thumbnails and no thumbnail browser).
This is actually one of the reasons why I wanted to clean the 0.18 
collection (and entries that came after this release) locally (on my 
computer) before importing it to CCHOST. Other reasons are:
- no need to reupload cleaned/improved files (uploading files to cchost is 
painfully slow and sometimes uploads even fail...)
- faster cleaning (no need to browse the uploaded 0.18 collection online, 
just browse it locally)
- less traffic on the server

These are my arguments :)
