   Oh, absolutely.  I don't mean 500-1000 pages all in one document;
we'll be producing maybe 20 documents, each one 25-50 pages.  But
overall, that's the scope of the project.
   I've already got a script written to format the pages
appropriately, and I'm desperately waiting for 1.3.4 or 1.3.5, when I
can use character styles rather than hard-code the fonts I need, among
some other refinements.
   Of course, *that* all depends on the scripting support in 1.3.4 and
1.3.5, which I gather hasn't been a priority.  And I can understand
the need to cater to 90% of the market before you cater to the other
10%.  I'm just hoping when we actually need to start producing these
things Scribus will be ready, or I'm going to have to find some other
