[Scribus] big SVG inserts in

FWIW, I just dropped an SVG image in a Scribus page which had over
800,000 line segments. It didn't seem to work on my older home
system or laptop (512MiB and 1024GiB respectively -- it was paging
heavily), but when I ran it on a bigger system the process image
(virtual and resident) zoomed up to 3.5 GiB and the results came
out fine. The 9+MB PDF file took a while to print, but all's well....
BTW, this was some GIS derived data which I didn't want to have to
trim, so I'm happy Scribus could deal with it in its full glory.
