One reason I used scribus initially was that I used a template, then  
imported the descriptions, etc. from text files.  It wasn't perfect  
but helped me streamline the process.

I'm philosophically opposed to ODP as a standard for anything but  
presentations.  Not because I think Scribus is needed, merely because  
I think we should use drawing formats - that would be Open Document  
Graphics (ODG) vs ODP.  At least in OpenOffice most of the same tools  
are likely available no matter which mode you're in.  (Though I see  
Layers are not an option in Impress mode).

Trivial details I'm sure :)
