I already have a script written that will detect stars that are too close to one another. I could tweak it to take into account other factors like spectral type or other factor that is in the data file.

I believe that AstroSynthesis can export *.csv files.
In theory one could export the existing star list,
merge the two *.csv files, and write a quick and dirty
program to parse through it and make a list of
stars that are suspiciously too close to each other.
Or even to weed them out.
