Scribus and OpenType

It appears that people besides me also have been frustrated by Scribus’s mishandling of OpenType fonts: http://bugs.scribus.net/print_bug_page.php?bug_id=3701

My greeting card designs are affected by this, including those I made with Inkscape, since it also is converting the fonts to ‘raw’ outlines—thus eliminating the hinting and so forth. Adobe Reader displays the results alright, but kpdf produces an awful mess. But XeTeX, ANT, etc., do the right thing, same as InDesign: convert the fonts to Type 1 and then embed them.
