the new scripter is being polished by jain...

... in this context it's a bit hard to find somebody who will add new 
commands for you in the current scripter engine. but you're welcome to 
give it a try.

the way a new command can be added to the current scripter is described 
in my blog:


you will have to go through it backwards to find all parts...

if you describe what are the commands that you are missing, i'm positive 
that jain or somebody else will make sure that they will in the new 
scripter that will be integrated in the future version scribus 1.6.

have a nice day
