But what we want is that the people who work on OO can choose the 
styles that we
are using in Scribus. We give to the author a list of styles (heading,
normal_text, etc.) that he will use in OO and when we import the text, the
styles become automatically our Scribus' styles (the idea is to avoid the
re-definition of the styles in Scribus).
