It's worth mentionning that at LGM the whole Scribus team have had a
meeting with Joao from GIMP who is the author of the scripter engine for
Python in GIMP and he offered his help to review the actual scripter to see
what was its current state and propose his views on what would be needed to
complete the work.

We discussed about the opportunity of updating all the scripts currently
running on old versions of Python, to Python 3 and this could be partly
automated through scripts as well, if I got it clear.

Joao explained how this could be done in "layers" where the most used
functions can be called up in a first level of commands while the less used
functions are stored in a less visible layer, always available but not in
the way, in a second level of commands, if I got it clear.

Joao had a first look at the code and mentionned he would need a couple
weeks before getting back to us with his overview of the scripter.
