First congratulations to all those involved. Now I would like to pin 
down exactly what is meant by the above paragraph. As we all know 
both TeX and InDesign use a paragraph justification scheme, and 
Quark, MSWord Pagemaker etc. use line by line justification. Where 
does the latest Scribus fall in these groupings?  More like TeX and 
ID or more like Quark?
