I don't think there is any evidence that this is adversely impacting the
effort to continue to develop Scribus. Even if we wanted to take the
tack that "Scribus should do one thing well" there are still many
decisions about exactly how to do this one thing. This ebook plugin may
inform us about which particular arbitrary decisions might make sense
from other perspectives.
