personally, what i can suggest you to do, is to submit not too big 
patches that

- go in the direction mentioned by andreas vox,
- improve the current situation,
- without changing the behavior of scribus.
- if possible and/or necessary, explain why you think the change 
complies with andreas' plans

- try to create the smallest patch that is useful and does not break 
- wait for it to be included in svn
- then propose the next patch.

behind the scenes you can keep on working in your branch...

good luck!
