No can do - yet. In addition to Craig Bradney's suggestion, you can also
use GhostScript to rasterise pages yourself and then include them as
images. Remember that Scribus currently imports PDF by rasterising it

It sounds like you want booklet printing / imposition. It's a regular
topic that comes up here, and one we have no built-in support for yet.
Check out the list archives, docs, and wiki. The footer of this mail
should have a link to the list archives.
