If you want to say exact: "Mi skribus" translates "I would write". I could 
write= Mi povus skribi - I should write: Mi devus skribi.

Yes, you can't pronounce and the letter x doesn't exist in esperanto. People 
use it to show the letters ?????? (unicode) cx, gx, hx, jx, sx, ux, that now 
with Unicode we can write normally.

By the way, reading the Scribus Faq I noticed that Scribus has his name origin 
from latin, but even that is not exact. In latin dosn't exist the word 
Scribus, but Scriba, scribae (first declination).
