[scribus] Importing tables

I don't suppose anyone has come up with a novel way of importing Word 
tables into Scribus text frames, by any chance?

At the moment, I am 
copying Word tables into OpenOffice documents, and then importing 
Openoffice documents into Scribus, and then hitting the tabulator key a 
lot. The end result is actually not bad, but it's tedious and boring 
work for a genius like me.  ;-)
