GIMP for the moment. You can select an image right click image and edit image 
will launch GIMP. To enable this: go  Settings >Preferences > External Tools. 
The add the path to GIMP. Control will not return until GIMP is closed 
completely, not just the image.

Not yet directly. If you had an ink limiting ICC profile, you could go this 
route. littlecms can handle this in lcms 1.12+ Export PDF/X-3 and then print 
from Acrobat.

You can create and save a custom color scheme with inks defined < 240%

Scribus does have UCR, Under Color Removal, which might help to prevent over 
saturation with newsprint. 

Hope that helps,
