Summary0011632: Function to generate Chinese page numbers

Sometimes, Chinese books show the page numbering in Chinese letters, not in arabic ones. Currently, Scribus does only support the automatic page numbering in arabic letters.

Well, I tried to do this in C++, but somehow... C++ is to difficult for me as a beginner :D Because I have no way to actually try the function in Scribus itself (compiling Scribus does not really work on my PC), I could only create the function on my pc, but without actually trying it. Also, the function would be so badly programmed that I thought you'd need more time to correct it rather than build it from scratch.

But because I didn't want to do nothing, I created it in Python. I know that Scribus is not written in Python, but...

Well, anyway, I hope you may implement it in C++. Actually the method is quite easy: Replace every roman digit by the appropriate Chinese one. For example, 123 will become ??? (\u4E00\u4E8C\u4E09).

After implementing this, it would then be good if there was a new item in Insert\Character with the name "Chinese page number", which is basically just the ordinary page number converted with this function to a Chinese number.

I hope this can be implemented :)
Thank you :)
