I note that the typeseting on the back cover of the manual utilizes 
optical alignment (hanging punctuation.) I would like to know what 
version of Scribus was used for this text, and how one turns on 
optical alignment in Scribus.  

One of my buddies, an InDesign user, criticizes the first paragraph 
for having oversized word spaces. He suggests that letterspacing 
has been turned off. I am of the opinion, along with Goudy, that a 
man who would letterspace lower case would steal sheep. However I 
do think that the paragraph at a time justification method used in 
both TeX and InDesign is the way to go.  Is that in the plans
