As Ale wrote... people use various style "features" and text formating (like 
right or center aligment with spaces and tabs, indentation with spaces or/and 
tabs or style or direct formating). Their imagination is very big about this.
So... I got many ODT files from many sources with many formating hacks.
Yes, I can clean this all "features" in OOWriter.
But... If Scribus will do this for me it saves lot of my time.

I would like to make import text with cleaning all anwanted formating and 
"hacking". I am starting with anwanted styles...

In the future I plan add
- removing multiply spaces
- removing spaces and tabs at beginning and end of paragraphs
- apply ShortWords and AutoQuote automatically
- replace "black" colors with pure CMYK Black (with option for apply pure CMYK 
Black for all text, even for colored with other non-black colors)

BTW: I am looking into ODT importer code and it seems to be too comlicated for 
me and very hard to understand and find where styles from ODT are added into 
Scribus... Any help?
