>There is no reliable way of doing it, I think. You can use several different solutions in Scribus so acheive the same PDF. For example how would the importer know if a two colum layout is a two column text frame or two separate text frames?
So I guess what you're saying is that PDF is just a description of how 
to arrange a bunch of colored dots on a screen or page?  Is there a way 
of embedding information in a PDF file that a pdf reader would be 
"blind" to?
