Thanks all.
These are graphics-intensice, color matched files, so 'm very wary of 
using such external ttols as I don't know what they actually do to the 
files (some convert to ps then back to pdf, or even worse convert all to 
rgb bitmaps). And honestly the learning curve of pdftk and similar tools 
is daunting.

I was looking for a production-ready, inside Scribus solution.
I'll output two pdf's and let the printer do the imposition using his tools.
