Well, not being one of the devs, I'm can't be sure. With horizontal 
centering, you're dealing with one line of text, but with vertical one 
or maybe several lines of text. I try to think of what I might need in 
Scripter for feedback so that I might automate such a process, and it 
isn't easy for me to conceive what that is. In the main GUI, there is an 
ability to set a Top space from the frame border to the beginning of 
text, but the resulting bottom space is a secondary passive amount -- 
does or can Scribus know what this is?
