[Scribus] closing files without saving

I wonder if anyone else has some occasional momentary confusion with the 
popup that appears when you about to close a document or quit Scribus 
and haven't saved.

First of all, it seems that the labels that Gimp or OOffice use are more 
to the point: Save, Discard (or Discard Changes), and Cancel.  Scribus' 
button 'Leave anyway' or 'Close anyway' seems rather weak (passive) and 
not exactly to the point. I think it helps to see that warning that 
something is about to be discarded.

Also the visual order is I think important: Save, then Discard, then 
Cancel reading left to right makes more sense.

Sort of nitpicky, but it seems it wouldn't hurt to have some commonality 
with other popular pieces of software. (I also don't know what these 
translate to in other languages)
