[scribus] Embedding fonts in a PDF file

I've just joined the Scribus list, although I've been using Scribus for 
several months now.  It's a great package!  I have one suggestion for 
improving the package:  I think that there should be a Preferences 
setting to automatically embed fonts when doing a PDF export.  As it is 
now in 1.4.6, you have to remember to specify this every time you do an 
export.  It seems like an obvious candidate for a Preferences setting, 
under the PDF Export category in Preferences.

I only use Scribus about once a month or so, and it's easy to forget 
this step.  The resulting PDF will look fine on my machine, since I have 
all the fonts that I used, but the fonts will get changed when viewed on 
a different machine that doesn't have them.

Is this the right list for this suggestion, or should I also subscribe 
to the dev list?
