[scribus] Wrapping text around picture behind text

To clarify the problem again:
Imagine you have a photo of a steeple of a church that covers the whole page (imagine you are writing an article about church architecture and on on the first page of that article you want to have a nice photo). Now the sky on that photo is very light so you can put text on it. The steeple how ever is dark and text wouldn't be visible on it. So you want the text to flow around the steeple, but be on top of the sky. As sky and steeple are the same picture, the text obviously has to be in the level above the picture, because otherwise it is hidden behind the sky. The only way to make the text flow seem like it flows around the steeple is by flowing it around another, invisible object.
