[Scribus] GIMP and the future of Open Source DTP

Hello all,

This post might sound a bit "off-topic" but I think the following link 
is worth reading, and discussing.

In short: a growing number of people are demanding that Photoshop be 
ported on Linux. The GIMP, which apparently lacks Color Management and 
full CMYK support (although I understand there are plug-ins for that) is 
not yet suitable for pros.

Scribus is clearly heading in the right direction towards acceptance by 
pros. And CMYK support is among the most important feature we have to 
offer with full Color Management implementation. I wonder if there are 
discussions going on between the GIMP and Scribus (and Inkcape) teams on 
CMYK support and better integration of all three apps?

I am sure some people on this list would have some thoughts to share 
about that.
