[scribus] Stalking the wild 'RTL language support' in Scribus

In Arabic, the books are also printed right to left, right? This is also
true for Japanese so the Japanese support would also benefit from that.

I think it would be very good if the CJK and RTL “groups” would
coordinate their effort and see if there are some overlapping functions
which can be implemented.

It would be really bad if now RTL support were implemented and when
there is (hopefully) eventually CJK support, everything would have to be
rewritten. So I guess it would be better if this could be discussed
beforehand :)

As I said, I am more than willing to give advise for CJK scripts. I
would just need somebody interested.... ;)
