As I recall it was Sir John Falstaff who wanted to off the lawyers. But perhaps 
my memory is faulty.

I am experimenting with Inkscape for book covers instead of Scribus. The big 
hangup with Inkscape is the formatting of large blocks of text, as in back 
cover blurbs and the like. It can be done but it is clumsy.  Inkscape does 
have however a book cover layout feature for perfect books, much like the 
cover dimension calculator I devised for Scribus, except you don't have to 
transfer the numbers to Scribus. In Inkscape the dimensions, guides etc are 
used to generate a new document instance.

But Inkscape doesn't have a pdf x/1-a:2001 output option, so Scribus is still 
my favorite. 
for my dimension calculator.
