scribus is single threaded and i fear that there are very little chance
to see this change in the foreseeable future.

yes, getting scribus to do its work in multiple threads would be very
welcome, but i fear that we will need a new contributor putting a
relevant amount of time into it before seeing a progress in that

have a look at how much work it took firefox to get multithreading
inside of their application... and then inside of a single tab...
(not sure, but i think that they now have multithreaded the css
engine... and for getting there, they "invented" a new programming
