i think he was writing about the other type of painters...

personally, i like the fact that scribus is built with the professional, 
classical, dtp worker in mind.
it's imho an insurance that the core features of scribus will be rock 
solid and that you won't experience *any* unwanted change on your 

i'm very happy if it can also fit for other workflows and needs (and i 
mostly do use it for other tasks!) and i think that  feedback for 
usecases like yours is more  than welcome!
i even dream of a scribus which would be suitable for producing 
translatable, evolutive, technical manuals...

but i also believe that such whishes should only be followed if they 
don't disturb the traditional work flow in any way.

so, having objects being automatically moved on even and odd pages is 
certainly an interesting feature. but you should be aware that when 
proposing such a feature, you have to make sure that frames always move 
in a predictable way. and a user not caring on that feature should 
*never* experience a wrong placed frame because of it.

you already got answers wich give some details on corner cases which 
will be difficult to be implemented...

now it's time to find out all the corner cases and to draft solutions 
for it!

have fun
