>Scripter should use ScCore->usingGUI().
Should the implementation in scriptplugin/cmdmisc.cpp and scriptplugin/scriptplugin.cpp be similar to the implementation of setRedraw?
ScCore->usingGUI() is the getter for ScribusCore::m_UseGUI but is there a setter other than ScribusCore::init()?

        Can someone answer this (via stackoverflow instead of here)

If he is using Scribus 1.5, after http://bugs.scribus.net/view.php?id=12774 all of the dialogs should go through ScMessageBox, which currently tests ScCore->usingGUI().
Could something expose ScribusCore::m_UseGUI or a new flag to the scripter?
