[scribus] Render Frame Variables

Perfect.  Thanks.

However, it doesn't seem to be working the way I would expect.  I'm 
updating a render frame tool (attached) to simplify it's process.  Part 
of the process is to write an auxiliary file and I'm trying to make each 
instance of the render frame using this tool write its own file set by 
using $scribus_file$ as part of the name of the auxilary file.  However, 
when I attempt this I get a permission error indicating that the 
auxiliary file cannot be written.  When I don't use the variable, the 
file is written just fine, but of course it's the same file for all 
instances of the tool use (not so important because the file is 
overwritten each time the frame is updated) and said file persists after 
Scribus is closed (more important as this will lead to lots of left 
overs building up if Scribus is being actively used and the machine is 
not rebooted frequently).  Does anyone have any ideas why 
`$scribus_file$-score.gabc` is not writable while 
`scribus_file-score.gabc` is?
