Topic: programmatically deleting Document scripts (Via Email)

We have a document which contains data entered in a lot (around 3000)
individual document scripts.

Entering the scripts is easy by using an accordingly set up FDF.

Now, there are some modifications to be made, and we noticed
artefacts which we can not explain. The best way out we found would
be completely removing all those scripts, and fill them in again from

The problem is that we have not found a way to do that efficiently.
It seems that somehow something gets slightly messed up, so that the
PDF Consultant Detect and Remove leads to errors, which prevent it
from completing its work.

So, I am looking for good suggestions on how to (either manually with
some trickery) or programmatically (FDF preferred, or plug-in (MacOS
X or Classic)) get rid of those document level scripts. Because of
the sheer number of individual scripts, deleting in the Document
Scripts window is no action, as deleting one single script will take
15 seconds or so...

Any advice highly appreciated.
