I'm inclined to agree - for booklets (A4 folded to A5) that are more
than 4 pages its worth using the scribus setup and the manipulating the
pdf.  For something tha is just a double sided A4 (one fold or two) its
probably just as easy to use some form f guide at the appropriate lace
at least until scribus is capable of the page manipulations its self.
