[scribus] Opening MS Publisher files

Pardon me if no one has mentioned this before but why don't you tell 
your MS Publisher users to send you their files in .ps or .eps format?  
MS Publisher can do it i.e. "File -> Save As" (or it could the last time 
I looked). Most users don't know you can do that and when you tell them 
they're surprised and get the satisfaction that they've learn something.

There are plenty of postscript converters/viewers around (for free if 
you use Linux/FreeBSD).

I don't know how good MS Publisher is at producing postscript files from 
complex layouts but I've had no problem with the .ps files user's have 
sent me.
