OK, I apologise, you are correct.
Drag from the file manager and drop into Scribus, simply provides a
relative link to the image in the sla file
But copying from gimp into the clipboard and then pasting into Scribus
from the clipboard does indeed provide that isInlineImage="1"
inlineImageExt="png" ImageData .. entry
Makes for a huge sla file, but nonetheless works.
