This is some sort of a clever hack that uses a particular Pantone online repo for mobile apps, but it doesn't actually suit our users' requirements, and it's at best condoned by X-Rite. Moreover, there's a reason for not including this script in Scribus: We can't afford to be sued by X-Rite for copyright and/or trademark abuse.
