[scribus] Support for Style-driven running heads

Hello there,

If a variable could be created which is linked to a style, such that when
that variable is used, it is replaced with the contents of the most recent
text that is marked up with that style. Example, I create a style called
ChapterTitle, apply that style to a piece of text to the Chapter Title at
the beginning of each new chapter of the document. This style also has some
display parameters. This is what can be done already.

New feature request: Be able to (somewhere) create a custom variable called
CurrentChapterTitle and select the ChapterTitle style from the list of
styles. Then create a new Text Frame on a master page and insert the
CurrentChapterTitle variable. For each page, the variable will display the
most recent style-marked text is.
