Well -  I don't know too much about how Scribus handles things, and I 
don't even know what your other package is, but it would be nice to have 
Scribus be more responsive.

I don't know if the underlying issue here is Qt, but if it is, 
presumably it would be a huge rewrite, if not impossible to change it now ?
