As I understand it, this code is rather offered to join the core Scribus 
codebase than to be maintained separately. The diff is not that huge and I can 
imagine someone will catch up, at least I hope so :) Even if I’m not exactly 
fond of these overseen effects (today its reflection, who knows what it will 
be tomorrow) I do agree that we can do the effort to line up with other DTP 
packages if it gives our users more chances to use and promote use of Scribus.

That said, I think we must provide on-canvas visualisation of the effect, it’s 
all what Scribus is about.

my 2¢
