Will do right now.
Meanwhile, here is my script 'postnet.py', which will generate a Postnet 
code in a Scribus document, and this code meets US Postal service 
criteria for line size, spacing, thickness of lines, etc. You enter the 
numbers via a Tk widget -- click Tk away when your entry appears in the 
second window, and your code is printed. You must have a document open; 
the script will convert your page dimensions to points; once it makes 
your Postnet code you can switch it back.
The script can be tweaked for a default location, otherwise make a group 
and move it where desired -- these are individual lines, not a graphic 
in a frame.

The code is generated with the lines horizontal, but since most printers 
print envelopes sideways this is preferred anyway.
Will plan on putting this in the Wiki.
