What we've seen so far are perl scripts that work outside of Scribus, 
such as the one to shrink the size of a PDF made with Scribus.

My first iteration of making a Scribus document from a directory of 
images was written in Perl, and simply generated an SLA file that 
Scribus could use. It was clumsy, but it worked. Of course, every time 
there was an update to the file format, it might require some changes, 
although of course Scribus is always backward-compatible with older file 

I have to say, I still like the way that Perl can manipulate data and 
strings better than Python.
