[scribus] fold marks?

In the past I had written that the ability to print the guides would
help us with team-work, because we could print training template sheets
for the various page-types in our magazine and mark dimensions etc.

We had learnt back then about work-arounds. And I had mentioned that I
like the way we can now arrange the stacking of the various elements.

This is indeed esoteric and not our most pressing feature at the moment.
And it does not fully help user Václav because a guide would still (so
far) not carry folding, cutting or other information.

Still the ability to print or not print the guides would be helpful with
certain situations, because the management for the guides is nicely
set-up already, so why not use guides for more purposes rather than
drawing lines manually.



I hope to soon share about how we managed to do our first full-size book
in version 1.5.3. Good weekend.
