Something that could be done would be to create a .zip file from a 
directory and its contents, and you could do this yourself. This is in 
essence what an ePub is. It might be worth a consideration for Scribus 
to have the capability of unzipping such a file. It can gzip an .sla 
file. Perhaps a 2-step process of Collect for Output, then zip. I wonder 
if a script might be written to do this zipping....

The problem with saving images in .sla files is the size. You might have 
a multi-MB file for one picture, and some Scribus projects have dozens 
or hundreds of pictures.
