The way you put your question is quite humoristic ! The fact is the P in PDF
stands for Portable and this tells a lot to what's happening. The pictures
are included into your PDF but they are only linked to your Scribus file.
So, yes, a .sla file can "balloon" (I like this expression) to just about
anything when we turn it into a PDF, depending on what is linked to it (the
.sla file).
