Several possibilities. One way is to configure an audit log
and use the accesslog overlay to write successful
modifications into it.

That is the real problem: you are using scripts that were
designed for a one-off data import. It would be much better
to build a synchronisation system that only modifies things
that actually need changing. You need to do this anyway, as
re-running the PADL scripts will not deal with deletions.
