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?
