[Scribus] wanting advice about editing .sla files

The context is that I'm continuing to use Scribus for
layout of Chess Canada magazine (48 pages, bi-monthly,
several thousaand circulation).
I've already had a bit of success using Emacs to edit an .sla
file -- with trial and error, I got rid of some junk objects.
(These were mainly objects I'd dragged off the page and lost!
They showed up with Scribus 1.3, but deletion in there was no
good because I needed Scribus 1.2 to be able to read the .sla
Can someone recommend a best available Emacs mode for
editing .sla files? (Can I hope for scribus-mode?)
Where is the best gentle introduction to .sla structure?
The immediate problem (and I'll still care about the above
questions even after this is solved) is that my PDF bookmarks
seem to be mysteriously disappearing. Sometimes some of them
show up, sometimes none. Sometimes I'll have something that
shows up in Scribus 1.2 (actually 220.127.116.11 or whatever) as
being a bookmark, but doesn't show up in the little bookmark
window, and when I then switch off it being a bookmark I get
disappearance of some other bookmark from the bookmark window.
Pretty confusing! But I'm guessing that if I find out what
to look for in the .sla file then maybe I can sort it out.
Fond regards (this is a great mailing list!),
