[scribus] Scribus feature request--produce compressed PDF output

I have found - from the beginning, several years back - that the Scribus
PDF files are too big. I only publish on the Net and like to keep the
file size down. I do re-size all photos down etc to help with this.
My answer (on PClinuxOS) is to save the Scribus PDF file and then from
the Terminal I do the following....
ps2pdf13 FileName.pdf NewFileName.pdf (no spaces in file names!!)
This gives me an approx 66% reduction in size. (Typically from about
15Mb down to about 5Mb)
Hope this helps - but I agree it would be nice to have this included in
Scribus itself - I'm sure a one line command option is not a big job to do.
Hope to see it one day.
