I would like to hear if somebody did database publishing with Scribus.

Currently, I am using InDesign and the workflow looks as follws

- Create xml export from datasource (db)
- Transform xml (using xsl) to add InDesign specifc information (e.g. 
table markup etc.)
- Import xml to InDesign with a little scripting help

Since Scribus's native file format is XML (and for various other 
reasons), I would like to evaluate a new approach. Any information would 
be appreciated.
