This is my script. It looks like there is an indentation problem in the 
Wiki. Python is very particular about indentations, since that is how it 
detects one block of commands from another.
The simplest thing, I think, would be to change
import scribus
by deleting the "try:" and moving "import scribus" to the left margin. 
The "try:" is really just a trap to detect if you're trying to run the 
script outside of Scribus, and in this case is not accompanied by an 
"else:" so it would just generate a Python error anyway.

Sorry about that. I'll fix the Wiki page.
