Yes. This is.

Actually I fix: "scr". May be also "scb".

Because GPL, thanks to God everyone may do what they prefer.

I will re-evaluate the decision again to change or not the extension 
type, but from a primary analysis
this change must be made.

In any case, scribus is NOT complaint to our FTGUIX standard and therefore
we need to modify the source in depth.

This will open a new branch of development.

I simply comment here to avoid it so, everyone may get benefits from a 
single effort.
