Multivalent seemed to be something that could work. Also a nice aspect to
have the annotations in a seperate file. Worked fine with a test file, but
failed in display a 16p-Scribus-generated PDF properly. Btw, this project
seems to be deep-frozen since 12/05...
So it seems like we have to wait till Philipp creates a new tool, or Craig
does the PDF-hack and implies the commentary function to the scribus
Til then I think I'll go on with a paid Adobe Acrobat copy. :s

@ Michael: Sorry. Misunderstood... Did't see that your comment about Perl
modules was to Philipp at first glance.

Thanx everyone, flacote
