Guys, don't get the book thing stuck in your head, it's not the point I
believe Allen was trying to make.  Scribus is designed to do
typesetting, page layout of which books fit into that category.  The
editing of the text included in that book layout is better done in a
text editor or word processor, which are faster forms of input, but the
ultimate goal is the layout using Scribus.  I doubt Allen and those
other guys didn't understand that.
