This looks fantastic. 

I've had a quick look at the samples and the code and I have a couple of questions.

My general observation without having installed the software is it allows you to design in a GUI and output an sla file which is then rendered by email.template rendering functions when called.
That is correct, but the manifiest has external dependency for scribus-ng. You have to remove that to install without Scribus on the server. But Scribus SLA-mode does not have the ability to merge records /
documents to one.

Control Functions - e.g. if, for - are these supported? If so, in GUI or manual editing of sla files?
Aligned with that I guess is pagination - if a for loop spread over a page what happens?
All functions in email.template.render_template do work, which I think, if and for. I have only tested simple notation so far.

Are Custom parsers supported?  It appears they could be.
Not intensionally ;-) Do you think its necessary?
Are headers and footers supported?  At first glance it appears not (things like correct page numbers comes to mind)
Headers and footers at a single page, yes. Page numbers no. The page-merge takes place in PDF. It takes some more work to merge SLA-documents. But then, its possible to have index-page and running page numbers.

But I'll give this a real road test in a few weeks.  Might be just what we were looking for.
Thank you, good luck!

We are happy to announce another enhancement to Odoo reporting; the 
Scribus report types. Scribus is a multi plattform FOSS page layout 
program with ability to create high quality PDF for professional printing.

The module uses Scribus pages in sla-format as templates. With a 
notation like the one in e-mail templates its easy to link data from 
Odoo to the report.

The report type Scribus PDF generates PDF-output, Scribus SLA a sla-file 
that you can do touch up to. The SLA-variant can only handle one object 
at a time.

Happy printing!
