scribus can import eps as vectors since a long time...

what you can do starting from 1.3.5, is to put eps (and pdfs) in image frames and have them included as is.
indeed, going that way may be worth a try, if you want to reduce the size of your pdfs!

but: don't forget that 1.3.5 is not a stable version and that it may kill all your kitten!

have fun
