I guess that would require someone who wants to tinker with gs and replace the Qt-based raster export.

I agree with AlmaTlust.
Occasionally, the print house needs a picture format. In this case need the bleed.
The Scribus does not allow cmyk tiff export (why?), but the conversion can be solved afterwards.
But bleeds are needed!

no, please don't do that.

scribus output format for professional printing is the pdf.
i don't think that we have the (wo)manpower for multiple output formats...
the direct printing is already heavily lacking on most platforms...

what we need is a tool that can correctly convert the pdf generated by scribus into an image that is of good quality for the print shop.

no idea if gs can already to that, but if it can, we should document how to do it.
