   Subject: Using scribus from console

we are developing a print portal. The main intention is, that user are able  
to choose from a sortiment of flyers and put customized informations on it.  
Afterwards this flyer will be send as a pdf to our printjobs.
The flyer templates are generated by an office using scribus. We get the  
goods as pdf documents from them.
It is not a problem to insert some text into predefined spaces if the text  
has a predefined maximum length.
In view to change words in a running text or to insert paragraphs in  
different lengths, we need more flexibility on it.
On this topic the following question:
Is it possible to save a scribus project as a formatting objects file  
Is it possible to invoke scribus through a script (Python or PHP)?

Thanks in advance.
