hmm isnt http://wiki.scribus.net/canvas/Create_tables_out_of_csv_data ?

I pasted your modified script there.
Could you explain what are the differences with the original script
so we know without having to study the script ?
It will help testers and core devs to test your script
and maybe merge it in the scribus code.

Scribus 1.5 features vertical centering so this might be the solution,
but i dont know how it works with table cells.
All the more since tables have been completely refactored in 1.5

Dont know. If not, post a request on http://bugs.scribus.net
