not yet planned... just discussed days before. There is a lot of (I mean _A_LOT_OF)
options for PDF exporting - compare the export eps and pdf procedures from
Scribus itself.
Do you think that the following example should be the solution?

SaveAsPDF(filename, listOfFontsIncluded, compressGraphics, ... blah blah blah ..., lcmsProfile...)

I hope there will be OOP avalable in Scribus python. My idea looks like:

pdf = scribus.ExportPDF()
pdf.filename = "file.pdf"
pdf.sampleImageDPI = 300
... etc ...

but the scribus scripter isn't prepared for this yet...
