I think all that's needed is the python extensions for mysql. What's
happening on the Scribus end shouldn't matter. We probably should work
on some additional examples, but one thing that's needed is a sense of
how someone might use mysql along with Scribus. Presumably in many cases
this would involve use of lists and/or tables, which are not so well
implemented in Scribus yet.
