I still fail to see how this increases capability in a meaningful
way. I could for example manipulate a file exterior to Scribus in some
other language (Tcl/Tk and COBOL are two I am familiar with) and
execute a call to Scribus from that program with the newly created file
name as a parameter. It is the old "who's on top" programming
question. Instead of calling an exterior program from Scribus call
Scribus from an exterior program. I just ran
and Scribus 1.3.9 came up with the one-page pdf file imported
automatically. The page was the correct size. I just had to move the
image frame a bit to get it on the page correctly.
There are still too many "got to have" features missing from Scribus,
as opposed to a "neat to have" feature you mention. For example we
still don't have pdf X/1-a:2001 output except in the bleeding edge
1.5.0 version. I just discovered in the last two days that some
graphic files created by e.g. Illustrator can't be imported without
conversion to bitmaps, and so on.
A facility the would be useful, at least to me, would be correct
import of multipage ps or pdf files. But to each their own.
