[scribus] font selection and activation

I have TexLive installed on my systems, plus a lot of fonts from a wide
range of producers. So I have some thousands of fonts. Scribus loads ALL OF
THEM every time is started, and uses ALL OF THEM in every window related to
the use of the fonts (such as the text editor). This is not useful and is a
huge waste of resources.

Maybe a possible solution is:

File > Preferences > Fonts

1) add the possibility to order the font list by font name, type, subset,
path to font file by clicking on the column header;

2) add the possibility to select many fonts at the same time by clicking
one font > shift-click or ctrl-click another font;

3) select/deselect the font availability (first column) for the entire
selected group, and not for the single font.

Is it a good idea or not?
