[Scribus] editing inline frames?

How hard would it be to add simple inline frame editing capabilities in
1.3.3.x? As far as I can tell, they're stored similarly to normal frames in
the file, so I wouldn't think it would be too hard?

You could select an inline frame with Ctrl-Alt-click, just like selecting an
object from a group, so you wouldn't need a special interface. Then you
could copy it to the clipboard or edit it like any other frame as long as
it's selected. When you deselect it, scribus would just recalculate its
position (to make sure it flows right with the text in the frame, in case
you changed its size) the same way as when you placed it inline in the first

If that's too hard, as a last resort how about at least allowing to select
it that way and copy or cut it from the frame, so you can paste it on the
page, edit it normally, and then paste it back inline? Inline frames can be
really powerful and would be much more useful this way.

Inline frames could also be listed under their parent frame in the outline
like objects in a group, and selected from there.
