True. You just loose all rights to use Scribus if you distribute those
under a non-GPL licence... ;-)

Seriously, I don't know what the exact position of the Scribus team
is on this point. Maybe we should clarify that in the future.
For myself I wouldn't like it if someone distributed Scribus together with
non OSS scripts, but I can (probably have to) live with someone distributing 
the scripts independently of Scribus. 
Let's see what the others think.
