Peter, what about FO->Scribus?

I'm highly interested in it, because we use docbook->passivetex for our
documentation at the moment. Creating XSL-FO is not a problem -- it is a
common task for xsltproc. So FO2Scribus would be quiet enough.

If anyone implements any tool to achieve this goal, I can provide as much
testing as needed.
