Looking for a way to show, with a little icon or other indicator, if a file in the Assets module is used in the system or not, as this would be a great help to editors.

This would help while cleaning up large image collections, removing old files after a redesign, finding out which one of the duplicate images with similar names that is being used, and so on.

We have build this functionality into the front end version of a simpler media bank already, but the client would love the same functionality in the Assets module in the Control Panel as well. Interested in if somebody done something similar and/or can recommend a way of extending Assets this way (since we can't find any hooks for displaying files) before we jump in?
