I second this. From our experience a big niche area
for commercial software in our native language, Oriya,
is in desktop publishing. Scribus looks like a very
promising alternative to Pagemaker. Forget
localization, Scribus with even an English interface
would help a lot in the credibility of open-source
software. Please let us know how we can help to get
Indic languages supported.
