Thanks to Gregory and John for their answers. So it looks screenshots 
are the way to go. This is not very convenient (if I want good 
resolution in A3, I will probably have to zoom in, take two screenshots 
and paste them together), but doable.

Is there a particular reason for this to be impossible to do within 
Scribus, or is it just because no one required that/thought about it/had 
time to implement it so far ? Or in other words, it is worth submitting 
a feature request bug ?
