ahoy Zaske,

	in Srcibus 1.5+ i made extensive use of Symbols which worked
wonderfully to create a library of reusable SVG/vector objects.  it also
helped reduce the resulting PDF dramatically.  however i am not sure how you
would export them to other Scribus users, though i would guess that simply
sharing a document with the Symbols would work.  hope that helps.

peace, w
