[Scribus] Several people working on same file

Hi Team,

Would it be possible/feasible/acceptable to allow a group of users to 
work simultaneously on the same Scribus file the we can do it with 
FileMaker for instance?

The Scribus file is on a server.
Anyone with the proper access privileges can open and edit this file.
When editing a page, all other users can see the page in its initial 
state (last version saved) but cannot edit it.
When editing a page that has linked text frames, all these pages 
become under the editor's control at that moment, preventing other 
co-workers to make any changes at that time.

I think this could benefit to lots of people working in group on the 
same project, especially in documents where each page (or very few 
pages) are standing by their own such as in a newspaper or 
multicollaborative work. This would simplifies the overall uniformity 
(same stylesheets, scrapbook, templates, color sets, etc.). In this 
kind of environment, there is no need to merge pages at the end.

Any thoughts on that? 1.5? 2.0? :)
