[scribus] Keep master page logic when modifying page order

English is the standard language so it is not that painful to accord everybody on _E or _O.
Come on, how many people use english even without noticing ?
Since i will need this functionality, I will first have a look at the Scribus code, understand its logic and propose a patch.
If the community doesn't like that patch, then it will not be added.
But to me, it is logic to code it that way. I don't mean it is for everyone else.
Another point : pain make people move; So will I.
let me see that code...
