I agree fully with what you're saying -- there's plenty of us more than 
willing to live dangerously with Scribus. You have to be willing to put 
a lot of work into something that ends up with problems. I think the 
challenge is to try to sufficiently warn new users to not judge Scribus 
as a whole by this developmental release.
