[scribus] Why Can't Scribus See My Fonts?

Well, adding the vault path to Scribus additional font paths makes ALL fonts in the vault (thousands of them) show up in the Scribus fonts menu, whether they're installed or not.  This is a bit overkill to have fonts managed by an independent manager available to Scribus.  I think there's a problem in the methodology of how Scribus detects installed fonts.

Using an Application Set for Scribus, or defining a few document Sets is something I may set up later after I get the kinks worked out of the Scribus installation and migration from Windows.  (Some fonts are only for specific documents, and don't really need to be active all the time or whenever Scribus is running.)
