Yeah, for real. Scribus is great for what it is, but imagine: version
1.2 didn't even have a working "undo" feature. I remember thinking, at
the time, Scribus is sucky for reasons like that and finding nothing
but blogs about how awesome Scribus is/was. No undo feature??!? That
is like, a ca1993 feature, people.

Anyways, I do find Scribus awesome[1] now. So don't think this is a
derogatory flame/troll post. And don't take it personally, devs,
although speaking as a dev[5], believe me, I know how hard that is.

[1] For certain given values of "awesome". Maybe not "go blind be
exposure to sheer awesomensess[2]" awesome.
[2] Love that movie[3]
[3] What movie? Kungfu Panda, duh[4]
[4] I just like footnotes
[5] Not of Scribus, sorry. Another big open source project though :)
