Well yeah, not everybody loves OO.o and definitely not everybody wants to 
import the formatting with the text. To some point this probably is Scribus' 
fault messing up the OO.o styles but I still think most of the users prefer 
plain text importing and want to make fine tuning of their layout in Scribus 
without the hazzle with OO.o styles. (I hope this will improve with the new 
code from Andreas and Myself where not that many "unused" styles must be 
created when importing from OO.o)
