Scribus is not the only tool in the box, although
I am using it more and more and TeX less and less.
For features like footnotes, indexing, multiple
TOCs, bibliographies  etc. TeX (I use Context) is
still the best game in town. So if those are
required I go back to the old program suite. For
easy manipulation of graphic inserts, ease of
selecting and using fonts, and a host of other
tasks Scribus is the new champion.
