I'd be delighted to see "scripter2" see daylight. Especially if the 
scribus CLI option was also available (not sure if this happened or was 
just a thought).

I've being toying with porting "scripter2" as a personal project using 
qt5, python3 and c++11 for a bit with some limited success.

My questions are:

1) What is it's current status?

2) Has there been any work done on it?

As I read these threads, it implies to me that there has been some work 
done but not what.
