The debate will grow.. :). I can see the future... 


Basically.. if theres a need for a feature that is reasonable for a DTP
app to have.. then it is worthwhile considering and we will consider it.

That is.. a multilanguage spell checker is planned based on aspell,
espell, ispell, ospell, uspell.. or one of the other 21 spell systems ;)
;)... or MySpell or perhaps even enchant. Expect it to be as cross
platform and flexible as possible.. so enchant might be the way to go.
Future plans.. This may come about when character based styles are
created though.. 

SVG can be created and edited in Scribus if you like, just as EPS can

Math ML.. never used it.. maybe.. future.. 
LaTex.. maybe.. future..

Lets see where we get to for 1.2 and then pull in the rest on the road
to 1.3 and further. We have a lot to do between now and 1.2 and we want
to make sure that everything we have now works correctly, as bug free as
possible, with as many new features, documents, code comments etc etc
etc that we can do.
