do you know if they are using a modified LaTeX? I didn't know that A0 
was an option -- the reason I ask is that ideally, if one were trying to 
incorporate some LaTeX output formulas in Scribus, you would want the 
biggest output it could generate. Then you might have a chance to use 
pdflatex, then convert the pdf to PS/EPS to import into Scribus.

that's got to be just wonderful...

I would say keep working on this -- it's an interesting issue that is 
not unique and needs a solution. 1.3.5svn may eventually be the answer.
