Looks interesting. I like some of the options in particular, like making 
the frame the same a page size. I've been making a presentation with 
Scribus the last several days and could have used something like this.

One question I have already is whether this could be set up to work from 
a keyboard command -- you set your various parameters, then later just 
hit (eg) Ctrl-T, and your custom text frame appears on the current page.
Another feature I can imagine making use of would be to have something 
like  a stack of settings saved. I might have T-frame-A, T-frame-B, 
T-frame-C, and could jump from one to the other as I worked my way down 
the document, without having to reset parameters each time. I can 
imagine this also working with the keyboard -- if I have a stack saved, 
pressing Ctrl-T shows me a little palette window with the list (could be 
custom named just like Master Pages), then I use the arrows to go up and 
down the list, then press Enter to select. I think this is the kind of 
thing that those who are making many-page documents could really benefit
