No, it's still not that easy. Seems I have to take an example.

Imagine that you on each page have 3 pictures with a caption. The caption
is next to the picture (not above or below). The picture and caption are
separate frames.

Now, the pictures alternates between being at the left side (with the
caption to the right) and at the right side (with the caption to the
right). When you export to epub you surely want all the captions to go
either above or below each picture (same for all pictures). But could you
describe the algorithm Scribus should use to decide in what order it shall
export the pictures and the captions?

Going from top left to bottom right will not work well. Note also that
going from top left to bottom right can be done sideways first (most
relevant for this case) or down first (more relevant for a regular 2 column
