[scribus] Dragging guides.

Imagine, you want to make a decorative "frame" around a Scribus document:

You place guides around and then you place your decor (for example
circles, or stars or whatever) unto the guides. Depending on your
layout, you will have half-circles or sectors all the way around your
document. Each "facing" toward the centre of the document.

I can imagine many more objects on Scribus documents which are just
"leaning in" or "hanging outside" like promotional stickers or whatever.

Or using larger-than-page objects to create backgrounds, for example
text-frames with reduced saturation. Would be helpful to be able to
guide-align such background objects.

So maybe for version 1.6 this limit for guides (to be placeable inside
the document only) could be removed? Hope it is not too hard technically.
