Something I just noticed while upgrading my office computer to FC5 is 
that there is now a libwpd, used by Abiword and OO.org to import 
Wordperfect files. It's written in C++.
Here's a link:   http://libwpd.sourceforge.net/

Using recent versions of Abiword, I have to say it works quite well, 
even for things like tables, which were previously always problematic. 
In fact, what I've been doing with Scribus is to load a file into 
Abiword, then copy-paste into Story Editor.
If I get the website right, there is also a wpd2html and wpd2text as 
command line options also.

I don't know how much trouble it would be to incorporate this into Scribus.
