To reinforce what Franz is saying, my tests on Scribus PDF's using PDF
pre-flight tools indicates that the way gradients are converted into smooth
shades is indeed correct and should not pose a problem for your printer.
That particular option is an Acrobat Distiller parameter which is enabled to
avoid issues with certain rips.
