[Scribus] automatic form generation using scribus

I have something that I've been doing with latex and I was wondering if
scribus might be better to the job. We have an online application here
where students submit information in a web page. The information is stored
in a database and when the secretaries want it, a script pulls the info
from a database, does some search and replace on a latex template, compiles
the latex document and spits out a pdf for printing. 

Now for my silly question: Is it possible to create a template in scribus
and with scripts fill in the info for the template and produce a pdf file?

I guess this would require running scribus in a batch mode with no user
interaction. Is this possible?

I'm new to scribus, so I hope you can be patient with me.

 What difference does it make to the dead, the orphans, 
 and the homeless, whether the mad destruction is brought 
 under the name of totalitarianism or the holy name of 
 liberty and democracy?
