If you're talking about this plugin 
http://www.blackfiveservices.co.uk/separate.shtml , well it's not very 
usable since it doesn't really convert the bitmap into CMYK color space. 
What it does is converting an RGB bitmap to separate CMYK layers. You cannot 
use them further (like placing the bitmap into Scribus for further work) and 
you cannot really have control over the colors. It's then unusable for 
professional work.
