This is all good to know. I wasn't trying to be contrarian.
The Scribus file format has a lot going for it, so even those who are
focused on Scribus development have a fairly distinct roadmap, there is
certain to be some surprising and unanticipated ways that someone might
want to incorporate Scribus. Perhaps conversion to html (aside from
their wide use, PDFs on the web are a source of annoyance because of
their size), perhaps generating a newletter in a "mass customization"
way, in which a newsletter created in Scribus can be generated in
multiple languages with each having its own set of images. Doable
within Scribus, but what if you could do one version, then make a
utility to make all the others in about 15 seconds (and a task that
could be done on a PDA that doesn't even have Scribus), then batch
Scribus to generate the PDFs?
