i've enhanced the "autoquotes" script that is provided
with scribus, and created a "spacenquotes.py" script
that now handles aswell the spaces inside quotes
for a good typography

+ it provides the choice for the type of space to add :
none or non breaking or thin or non breaking thin
+ spaces are only aded when not allready there...
+ dialogs are displayed in french when fr is selected
+ the algorythm has been slightly changed to determine
whether a quote is opening or closing

- spaces are added inside quotes, if not there allready,
but not outside quotes (that should be a job for another
more general typographic tool)
- it only acts on the currently selected frame (only one)
(acting on more than one selected frame, or on whole chain
of linked text frame would be nice).

Script is here :
download file, save it with 'spacenquotes.py' name
enjoy and report possible issues
