I'm a Mac user coming from a Quark/AppleScript background. I recently 
downloaded Scribus and would be very interested in converting our 
current real estate workflow to Scribus:

1. Clients (Access) upload to web database (MySQL)
2. I export text dump from MySQL, pull in to Filemaker (Classic)
3. AppleScript pulls together Filemaker data & photos by ID in Quark (Classic)

I read the (oh so very spartan) Python scripting info and was very 
little the wiser. I've never done any Python, though am (reasonably) 
competent in AppleScript & PHP. Could someone post some example code 
for Python automation?

Then I can quit Classic for good :)
