Sorry I don't actually need it as an individual, if it were a fully implemented feature of Scribus I personnally would find little use for it, just that few times doing business cards I had a little bit more trouble, but that remained tolerable. 

Actually I think next time I am facing this type of project I will try the clone + tile features of Inkscape instead of the align and distribute of Scribus.

As for database scripts, I guess what the OP meant was that it was possibly difficult to find all the information relating to it - but then it is a complex topic too.
