One of the inane things I do with Scribus is print envelopes -- I use a
template I concocted, my Scripter Postnet generator, and it's faster
than any other way (on Linux). Turning them into ps or pdfs, though,
doesn't make sense.
I think there are plenty of things that people may want a quick and
dirty printed copy from Scribus without generating the PDF.
