Well, Joao was excited at the idea of helping us and this would also help
him as the GIMP wants to use Scribus to produce the printable version of
their docs... which in turn obliges to have a scripter that works... Hence
his proposal to give a hand. It's a commitment. He said he would help and I
see no reason a few days after our meeting for him not to do what he said
he would!

He said he'd needs two weeks.

Let's see what happens then.
