I wonder if there could be something added to 1.2.x to result in a more 
informative message when someone attempts to open a 1.3.x file (rather 
than none at all).  I also note that the Scribus website page that talks 
about "La Libert?" doesn't mention this issue, that a file saved in 
1.3.0 format will not be able to be opened with earlier versions.

Second question: what if someone saves elements from 1.3.x, can these 
elements be used from 1.2.x?  It might be possible for someone to 
reconstruct a file in 1.2.x without starting from scratch.
