Understood, but Scribus 1.5.0 is the only reliable Open Source program 
that will produce valid PDF/x 1-a:2001. There is a TeX routine that 
will patch the labels in the pdf file but it doesn't check or change 
the content of the file AFAIK. 

Instead of page at a time importing  of single pdf pages I have the 
alternative of redoing the whole book in Scribus.  That has some side 

Stay tuned.
