if you're a linux only shop doing graphics, i think that you don't come 
around to do a bit of testing of those tools, get used to the command 
line tools and maybe build small GUI front ends tailored to your needs 
for the ones you most use.
(or finding somebody doing that for you)

it does not be today -- the choice to give the instructions to the 
printer seems very sane to me -- but at some time you will need them.

and if you share the solutions, other people will be able to improve 
them and give feedback! :-)

scribus is a DTP and not a Pre-Press tool... it would be nice if a set 
of (nice, correct and friendly) tools for pre-press could be created 
around Scribus!
