[Scribus] Manual draft for scribus 1.4 on the Wiki

Hi all,

I just added a draft for a yet-to-come scribus manual. At the moment it 
only contains the outline, and I would suggest, that no text be 
contributed until the outline has found its final form.

The idea behind it is that the documentation can keep up with the 
development speed of 1.3x, since 1.4 will be a major leap forward, and 
older tutorials probably lose much of their value. With the release of 
1.4 a manual would be available that can be integrated into the help 
browser or be translated. After having done the layout in scribus, it 
would even be possible to print an "official" manual.

You may notice that there's no need to write each chapter from scratch. 
Much of the necessary content can be copied from the docs (if the 
authors agree) or other Wiki articles.

Those of you interested in contributing, please have a look at the 
outline. Change it or enhance it, but, again, please don't contribute 
any text (other than headlines, of course) yet.

I suggest using either the Wiki discussion tab or the list to decide if 
the outline has matured enough to add content.
