[Scribus] Copying frame properties - with Scripter?

I've been thinking about this issue of being able to copy properties 
from one frame to another, and wondering whether one could write a 
script to do this.

As I look through the Scribus manual, though, it doesn't seem that one 
can get very many properties: if it's a text frame, one can get the 
contents, its size, various things about line spacing,  font information 
(though apparently only one type per frame). For image frames, the name 
of the file, its scale. For both kinds, one can get line color/shade 
(and other attributes like join type), fill color/shade, position, 
width/height, how much rotation.

Someone might tell me if I'm missing some important features, but I want 
to try to start by writing a script to list these, after which the next 
step would be copying selected features to another frame.
