This is already handled by "Optical margins" (introduced in 1.3.4).
In Scribus it's fully automated and includes margin kerning of
non-punctuation characters on the right side (check 'r' and 'f').
Nowadays it's not recommended any more to hang the punctuation
100% outside the margins. Instead, Scribus takes the values which
pdfTeX uses for the same purpose (50% for wide marks like "?????;:
and 70% for narrow marks like ,.-'`?). Other dashes are rightaligned
with the hanging hyphen.
For dropcaps / initials other methods are needed and will be added at
a later stage.
