Is there anything on the horizon, or should those with such needs seek other pastures? I tried OO Writer, but though it works, the memory pressure seems to be too much, and it starts behaving rather erratically with much graphic and pagecount in it. Scribus was to be my rescue, it seems now I might have been too hopeful?
For now and the foreseeable future, the recommended method is to break 
your work into 20-30 page fragments, export these to PDF, then splice 
them together with something like pdftk -- other utilities are also 

This is how Christoph and I (disclaimer: Christoph did the layout work) 
managed to make the PDF for our Scribus manual (400+ pages), so quite 
large projects are possible.
