What would make writing this scribus-->OO import plugin "virtually
impossible"? New scribus file format is made to be well-formed and valid xml.
What could be easier to process? Now, OpenOffice Writer and Impress may not
support complex layout arrangements that Scribus can produce, but that's not a
valid concern on the Scribus side, is it?
