[Scribus] Possible to have different margins on facing pages?

I frequently used flush left, ragged right (unjustified) text in my 
books.  But this makes the apparent gutter margin on Left pages 
(where the ragged line ends are near the spine) look wider than the 
gutter margin on Right pages (where the aligned line beginnings are 
near the spine).  The solution is to move the Left text frame a 
little closer to the gutter and the Right text frame a little further distant.

When viewing the opening, both gutter and foreedge margins look like 
mirror images owing to the optical illusion caused by the uneven line 
ends.  If I create a new Double Sided document, is there any way to 
have different margins on facing pages?  Or is the only current 
solution to just set mirrored margins, then add guides for where text 
frames will actually be placed?
