At the Network Industry Awards, I got into quite a good discussion with
the OOo crowd who had been amazed at how good Scribus was and the speed
of development. The conversation went so far as to say that OOo would
love Scribus to be able to *almost* an integral part of the OOo setup.

As soon as my laptop gets back, I'll crack on with the Quark and OOo
importers (as well as the partial re-writes for the 1.1 release). I'm
