[scribus] Scribus Feature Suggestion

What I think would be handy is checkboxes on the Additional Paths preference tab.  This way, a user could create font subset directories, set up paths to them, and then selectively choose which of the paths to have "enabled" at any given time with a checkbox next to each path.  (Of course, there should be Uncheck All and Check All buttons...)  Then, on the Available Fonts tab, a subset could be narrowed even further, if needed, with the checkboxes on that tab.  What's desperately missing are the Uncheck All and Check All buttons on the Available Fonts tab.
