[scribus] If not D-BUS, then what?

OK, here's what I am trying to do.

I have a flyer that I plan on having the marketing droids design. It 
will be laid out exactly how the company wants, but I plan on inserting 
sales contact information/photo depending upon who is electronically 
requesting the flyer -- a customer in region A will get Salesman Joe, 
and a customer filling out from a location where disaffected college 
students live will get one from one of salesmen Larry, Curly, and Moe. 
I'd say to do a mail merge to do this, but I wanted better control of 
the layout -- and I also didn't want to have a human have to start 
scribus and exec the script -- just call scribus on demand when the docs 
are needed, so that we don't waste paper just to have enough flyers on 
hand. (Depending upon how they request it, most would get a PDF anyway...)

I can use xsl/htmldoc to render it -- but it won't look as good.
