Hi Alex,

I am probably totally too late to add anything here but we never know. I
have not followed the knots and bolts of Google Summer of Code...

I have reviewed the projects...

One that come immediately to mind is trapping.

At least to be able to have the black overprint (or set any color to
overprint) would be something to improve the acceptance of the product into
real-life production. The actual behavior is knock-out black (or any color)
on the background and this cannot give good results on press. The LGM
Brochure is a good example of this although the pressmen have done a
remarkable job to diminish the bad effect.

I don't want to enter a discussion on what is better or not for the user...
but end-to-end publishing needs... for instance... if we cannot print it
reliably...  is this a priority? To me, no. Very, very few people know how
to work this way.

Just a thought.

First comments from the pressmen when they encountered a Scribus job ? no

At least I think it's worth to let you guys know. We're not professional,
yet... in color printing.

Can we change that in the SoC frame?

If not, this calls for a priority RFE.
