With PSUtils readily available I would categorize this 
requirement as "nice to have" rather than "must have." 
There are other areas of equal or grater difficulty worthy 
of attention. If we require Scribus to do all things it 
may become overweight and more difficult to maintain. The 
table of contents feature, running heads 
keyed to the current content, indexing, tabulation etc. 
deserve attention.
