I wasn't really thinking of editing in-frame, I was thinking of just moving
frames around.

If I have two frames, one with a heading (single column) and one with the text
(multi column) it is a real pain that Scribus redraws the text frame as soon as
I move or resize the hrading frame...

Also, when zoomed out (page fits window) there is not much sense in keeping
content in sizes below say 10 points correctly rendered. You w'nt be able to
read the text anyhow when the height of letter is 4-5 pixels only.

I guess the problem is that Scribus redraws on the X server and does not keep an
"image" of the frame in memory?
