As a developer of one of the above mentioned applications (CinePaint), I
can say I am all ear to your suggestions in preparing especially this app
for DTP / Pro needs. Some features suggested during discussions with
mmembers from this list are allready implemented.
As well the Scribus team, Krita developers and much more are in talking
about enhancing interoperatibility in various projects, like OpenICC,
Create and Oyranos.
