[Scribus] Scripting -- is this possible?

Just a quick question for you Scribus scripting gurus -- in reading the
Scripter wiki, it appears to me this is entirely possible, but I want to
check in first and get opinions before I start hacking away at writing

I'm laying out a technical book on small wind turbines in scribus.
There's a very dynamic thing that happens when small turbines furl out
of the wind, and it's difficult to understand -- so we had the crazy
idea of making a 'flip book' movie in the lower right hand corner...flip
through the pages and watch the turbine furl.

It seems to me I can -- extract frames from the video and sequentially
number the photo files. Insert an image frame at the lower right hand
corner of every right hand page, on the master page R. Write the script
to increment the filename, and insert the image in the frame, then go to
the next righthand page.

Seems to me all the commands to do this are in the scripter. Any

Thanks -- DAN
PS -- looks like I'll be learning python!
