I realize that this is because Mantano requires the user to import individual books rather than relying on a scan of one or more directories, so Mantano has no way of detecting that a book has been deleted from outside of Mantano.

I would like to suggest that Mantano add a menu option to validate the pointers to the books in it's book-list. Mantano would simply run through all of the books in it's list, checking that each book actually exists. If a book does not exist, it should be flagged in some way, perhaps by a tag or adding it to a "Missing Books" collection. From there, the user can decide what to do with the entry in the book-list.
Good idea, this would make it dovetail nicely with calibre.
Perhaps change the import option into a scan for new/changed/missing books.
