When you say, "incompatible with Scribus" I would want you to understand
that at most, Scribus can load the first page of a PDF into an image
frame. Scribus cannot edit PDFs, it is for making them.
You might try uploading a smallish PDF to the bugs site:
to let people have a look at it.
Another alternative might be getting OpenOffice.org, loading the .doc or
.rtf, and making a PDF from there.
