Blickfang: I've been using Scribus for around two years, mostly for personal stuff. It's available in Mac/Aqua and Win-32 as well as Linux. Everything in your sample PDF can be done easily in Scribus.
Your explanation of the 9x9 layout suggests to me that you may be thinking about the "Golden Mean" proposition for layout. It doesn't work well with standard U.S. page shapes (as North American users remain stubbornly non-metric.)
If you want to work with Scribus, there are several helpful resources. The main Scribus page has links to helpful sites, as well as documentation. The Scribus Public Wiki has some good tutorials and examples of publications done in Scribus, though its contents, like those of any wiki, should not be regarded as infallible. Finally, there is a #scribus IRC channel in Freenode, where you can get real-time help from the Scribus developers and other users.
