[Scribus] Text Wrapping Around Transparent Objects

Frequently in my layouts (one-page advertisements) I need to wrap text around an irregular object such as a car. I take a picture of the car, then eliminate the background using a GIMP path and export the finished product as a transparent PNG. Scribus recognizes the transparency in my file and will let me select new background colors--a nice feature--but text will not automatically wrap around the outline of my object . I know there's a workaround solution for this involving invisible polygons, but does anyone know how it can be done automatically? (I'm using the make-it-work Win2000 port as of now; perhaps this is why the feature is not available). At any rate, I'd like to know how other people have dealt with this. I think it's a common need in DTP.
