My apologies Joop. It was not my intention to be condescending. It's 
just that all the people I know who have needed imposition have been 
those who print the occasional booklet on their home printer.

AFAIK Indesign has a plugin for imposition which has to be purchased 
separately so I suppose one could infer from that that even Adobe 
doesn't think imposition is a necessary function.

But it does raise the question that as plugins are a such convenient way 
of adding functionality to an application perhaps it's something that 
should be built into Scribus. A future version perhaps?
