For complex scripts as in Indian languages (HIndi, Telugu, Tamil, Malayalam, Bangla and many others) we do not have a good page layout application. We are currently able to make brochures in Indian languages using Inkscape. However, Free Software community in India is loosing out DTP work for books, text books etc. Ironically even the books about free software could not be made using free software because of this problem. Scribus's does not support Indian languages. It can be used only for English books. We cannot ask users to use free software only for English, and for Indian languages use some other proprietary application. Currently most of them are using Indesign, and some shops use pagemaker. I have no idea how difficult it is to implement this feature in Inkscape. Spke to Felipe Sanches about this couple of times. This feature may not be in your road map for obvious reasons. I am interested in getting this problem solved, and I wish this feature will be there in Inkscape. I can raise some resources to get this problem solved. But, I do not know how many hours of programming is required for this. Please consider this feature.
