[Scribus] fonts.dir and fonts.scale

I've traced my Scribus font problem to the lack of either of the
two files ("fonts.dir" and "fonts.scale").  I know how to create
them.  By hand.

Inasmuch as Scribus is the only program I have that explictly
requires the presence of such files, my wishlist request is:

Would it be possible for Scribus itself to create these two
files?  To make this user configurable option, the fonts (which
are likelty to be installed as root) could be symlinked in a
Scribus ~/.scribus/fonts/ directory.  Here fonts.dir and
fonts.scale could be created without becoming root.
