[Scribus] Memory Consumption on Image Frames

I'm using scribus to do annotations on PDF documents. I import all the 
PDF pages in image frames. I see that scribus caches in memory all the 
images contained in an entire document and makes "imposible" to edit 
documents with lots of images (40 (1800x2775) images take about 800MB of 
memory for a 40 pages PDF). Anybody knows if there are plans to do a 
more intelligent caching of images or image frame behavior (only caching 
the images that are shown or its neighboring pages) so that we can use 
scribus in documents with hundreds of high-res images?
