I'm asking, I'm playing, I'm learning, I'm playing...

My counterpoint would be two things,
1. If Scribus itself were released after it was 'done', it wouldn't be
out yet.
2. It's possible that in the process of writing about a feature, one can
realize, 'you know, that's not really the way it should be...'
I love this program!
