I know exactly how to do it (see SwatchBooker). That's why I'm proposing
to write a script that would download Pantone's online data into
Scribus. But these data are in CIE-Lab so I need to convert them to RGB
or CMYK. I could simply convert them to sRGB but since Scribus is color
managed, it would be a pity.
