Here is my first try at scripting Scribus:

If you run it as standalone (or within Scribus < 1.5 but it doesn't
really make sense), it let's you save Pantone's palettes in your
"swatches/locked" folder.

>From within Scribus 1.5, it features importing individual colors to the
current document. It's limited to version 1.5 because earlier version
don't allow to define RGB colors, which is how color data are available
(with Lab, of course) for most of Pantone's palettes.
By the way, adding individual colors from libraries is a feature that
should be added to Scribus since you usually need process colors and a
few spot colors. You don't need to import the whole thousands of colors
in your document. And if you want to load a library, you loose all your

Comments and suggestions welcome...
