It's a great script candidate if we had Scripter commands to do this.
Aside from the snail-like pace of implementing Scripter2, the new
tables function is still only in 1.5.0svn, and I think it makes little
sense to implement table Scripter commands for 1.4.x and older.


PS: You have GOT to upgrade your Scribus from that ancient version.
