Well with bookland.py you _are_ making it yourself. Someone has
produced the tool and is giving it away. If you can't handle keying
in a simple bookland.py command the same party will produce the
barcode for you online, again for free. All the specs are public
domain. If you want to reinvent this particular wheel have at it.
No wikapedia needed in this case.
There is no conspiracy. Indeed there is less here than meets the eye.
Here is the tool. It works. It is free. It is better than the tool
that comes with Scribus. Use it if you like.
Able Indexing and Typesetting
Precision typesetting (tm) at reasonable cost.
