[scribus] Black and blacker.

I am correcting a cover file built by someone else. The author wants a 
certain line of white text on black background covered up. No problem 
using a rectangle. But to get the rectangle to match in Scribus I need 
to use a new color of about 96% K. That makes the rectangle match in 
Scribus but unmatch in acrobat reader. A rectangle of pure 100% black 
does fine in Acrobat Reader but is noticeably blacker in Scribus.

I am using the latter choice. But only the proof copy will tell for 

The original artist used Photoshop at some point in the process. Who 
knows what black she or he used? However it is interesting that a 
black background which is jet black in Acrobat Reader shows up as a 
very dark gray in Scribus.
