Yes inkscape is nice indeed. I tried several times to use the bezier 
tools in scribus, but had very little success. Perhaps I was not patient 
enough. What works for me is draw svg's in inkscape and import them into 
scribus. I keep doing that all the time. It would be nice to be able to 
call inkscape for modifying curves just like you can use gimp to modify 
a bitmap from scribus.
