[Scribus] Feature: importing multiple page documents

Hi all,

I don't know if this issue has already been discussed here (I'm almost 
sure it has, given the creativity of the scribus community ...). Anyway, 
this one is related to http://bugs.scribus.net/view.php?id=1094. Once 
scribus is able to import OO.o spreadsheets and presentations (I 
distinctly recall this being mentioned as a planned feature) and the new 
table features are implemented, it might be useful to be able to import 
spreadsheets and presentations the same way it is mentioned in the PDF 
request, i.e. select a defined set of sheets or import the whole file. 
For each sheet of the original file, a new table/image frame could be 
created with multiple options for placement on a page/document (e.g 
overlapping, distributed). One could even think about letting scribus 
create a new page per imported page, which would be useful for creating 
PDF presentations, and there are more possible options to think about.

I know, probably another request to have the wizards rack their brains 
over it, but if more users find it useful, the efforts might be worth it.
