In Scribus, as far as I know, for each object you can choose to overprint
or knockout.

So it's fully possible to overprint small text even it has been converted
to outlines.

As for the fill rules, isn't that a property of the RIP? Do all RIPs behave
the same?

On the other hand, as far as I understand outlines in Scribus are stored as
a "custom font" (a type 3 font if I recall correct). This should mean that
the RIP will handle it as text, right?
