Hi Matthias,

I just made an offer on cofundus and added some restrictions I see after
looking over the PDF specification. One thing I see is that it would be
difficult to preserve hyperlinks in the embedded PDF, I doubt that would be 
feasible in the 0.1 version.
Another problem is that we effectively have a feature freeze for Scribus
so it will not be possible to merge my work with SVN trunk before 1.3.5 is

Do you have a list of PDF producers which must be supported (pdflatex,
InDesign, ...?)
