well done!

i still think that this feature is worth to be integrated into the main
scribus GUI and that it would be a wonderful first patch for somebody
who wants to start contributing to scribus!

- create a simple .ui file
- go and find where the master pages gets applied (might be multiple
- check if the two MP have different margins and if there are items on
  the page; if it's the case start the dialog
- if the user choses to move the items, go through all the items on
  the pages and change their Y coordinate by the difference between
  the old and the new margins.

if somebody wants to give a try i can mentor him/her

have a wonederful day
