it's probably impossible for a package to tell whether the objects are actually identical or not - you could analyse form and vertex ordering etc. but there's no guarantee unless a record is kept of where the object in question originated. somebody cleverer than me might be able to think of a means of doing it but I can't.


If I had hundreds of copies that really should've been instances I'd write a script that aligned instances of an object with everything in the current selection.
