Deleted/Dup Check on Eject?

I'm toying with an idea for a new plugin and could use some advice.

When I decide I don't want to read a particular ebook after all, I delete it from the calibre library. So I end up with books on my devices that I don't want anymore. Less frequently, the same book on a device will end up on the device more than once.

While it's easy enough to find dups and deleted books manually, I frequently forget to check before I eject the device.

So I was thinking of a plugin that when invoked would check for deleted books on device (search inlibrary:False) and duplicates (search ondevice:"(") and then alert me. Or eject the device if none are found.

Is there already a way to do this? I don't want to duplicate effort.

Also, I haven't figured out a way to do the "inlibrary:False" on search from code. Any advice? I expect I'll have to do it separately for memory_view, card_a_view and card_b_view.

Here's what I've found for the dup search:
Spoiler:
Code:
print("library Dups:%s"% self.gui.library_view.model().db.search_getting_ids('ondevice:"("', None))

And the eject:
Spoiler:
Code:
self.gui.location_manager._eject_requested()

Any better suggestions for those?

Thanks,
Jim
