.sla files (Scribus) can't open with a double click

Status in “scribus” package in Ubuntu: Confirmed

Bug description:
Scribus files (.sla) are plain text files. Nautilus associates them with Scribus, but won't let you open them with a double click.

'Cannot open xxxx.sla

The Filename "xxxx.sla indicates that this file is of type "Scribus File". The contents of the file indicate that the file is of type "plain text document". If you open this file, the file might present a security risk to your system.'

You can open the file by right clicking and selecting 'open with'.

Obviously, 'this behaviour is by design', and in many cases is a good idea. But if there was some way to let Nautilus know that Scribus files ARE of type 'plain text document', so it doesn't complain when opening, that would be a good thing to do when Scribus is installed.
