To do that, text reflow needs to be separated from drawing, since the
appearance of the current page is dependent on flowed text from previous
pages. Andreas is working on doing this along with the new text engine
work. Ideally the two would never have been mingled in the first place,
but since they are there's no way to make pages draw completely
independently until they're separated out.
Scribus should already be reasonably comfortable with quite large files
so long as linked text runs don't flow throughout the document, and so
long as you have enough RAM (which may mean LOTS of RAM depending on the
doc contents and how you're going to export it).
