Missing features are documented at
http://wiki.scribus.net/canvas/ScripterNG/Development/PortingOldScripter and
Most stuff is a laborious task.

Besides I still have some code on my local branch which I haven't
submitted yet.  Additionally PyQt got some features in the last
releases which could simplify some parts of the Scripter NG core.

Anyway, interest in Scripter NG is great - please ask if any help is needed.
