the problem is that you will want to have kerning support (and other
advanced features) for the latin languages!
i don't think that we want to have two different layout engines, one
with simple non latin support and one with some advanced features for
at least, i don't think that this can be done in a shorter time than
finishing the support for OTF in scribus...
but, as i've already written in my preivous mail: who knows?
