[scribus] Curly quotes and long novels.

I know Scribus is not optimal for very long books. But if I should take 
the plunge with a text that is full of double curly quotes (lots of 
dialog) how do I import the text and preserve all those curly quotes? 
The Scribus 
select-from-a-menu method is a non-starter-- too much hand labor.
Should I prepare the text with (space)" and "(space)? Should I run it 
through open Office first for curly quotes and then import the ODT 
file? What is the optimum strategy? 

On things like this TeX is easier (sigh).  but I like the Scribus font 
selection method and letterspacing (for running page heads) better.
