A thought: since the Scribus format is XML, one interested in developing 
a solution for table of contents and indexing might look to the 
extensible style language transformation ("XSLT") paradigm outside of 
Scribus.  The development in XSLTs for these kinds of tasks is mature 
and might be easily be adapted into Scribus using Saxon.
