i would say that, compared to the rest of the free world, pdf are a
strong feature of scribus.

still, depending on the type of pdf you get and on the result you have
to achieve, you will have to rasterize the pdfs and use the correct
color profiles for it.

i may be wrong, but i think that the list needs more information about
the type of pdf you get (vector? text? bitmap?) and what kind of output
you whish to generate (cmyk? rgb? printshop? offset? color? grayscale?
web?) to help you...

have fun
