[scribus] a wiki page with a script using applyMasterPage()

I can confirm that the new Scripter command does work, based on the 
script I wrote that I show on this wiki page:


The script first shows you a list of Master Pages in your document, each 
indexed by a number. It asks you to choose by number the MP you want to 
After that, you then get a dialog asking for a list of pages to apply 
this MP to. As written, you have to explicitly enter each page number, 
like 1 4 8 13 and so on, only separated by white space. I do it this way 
to make use of the Python split command to create a list out of the 
entry. It would be nice to be able to enter something like 1 5 7-10 15, 
but parsing that 7-10 is more challenging, and besides this is just a 
demonstration script.

I'd like to figure out how to drop the kludgy ending if I can find some 
other way to force a document refresh in Scribus.
