Dear Scribus Team,

Thank you for your efforts and contribution in making such a nice 
professional desktop publishing software for the publishing world.
As a self publisher who simply cannot afford Adobe Indesign's outrageous 
pricey cloud based program, I think Scribus is an awesome program for 
folks like me.

Would you be as kind to also include line breaking rules for Asian 
languages like Korean, Japanese, or Chinese, etc....?

European style or Latin style languages have hyphens that could be used 
to prevent white river spaces between words.
But Asian languages don't need a hyphen to break a line.
In my usage of Scribus I couldn't do anything with it to make line 
breaks that could be broken up by text in Korean.
Scribus only breaks a line in Korean by clause which makes really wide 
white river spaces that are too ugly and obvious to be published.
I tried to tweak it by adjusting the tracking and width for space 
settings, but the problem still remained.

If you could fix this problem or show me how to do it, I would be 
soooooo grateful.

Thank you again!
