I agree. However, I honestly think they should be a separate 
application, compatible with Scribus (able to read .sla files, etc.) 
While Scribus is good at what it does and getting better all the time, 
let's not try to turn it into a monolithic do-everything beast.

Instead, let's get some basics available (bleed, trim space, and so on). 
Then, let's shunt the file to a dedicated pre-press/imposition program, 
if someone will step up and write it. A front-end for psutils would be a 
good beginning. I'd write it, myself, if I could ever get anything as 
complex as a "Hello World!" to compile without errors.
