If a file is not a supported encoding or contains a NUL it won't open,
but you get a message in the status tab and status bar, and likely
lots of trying/failing messages in the `Help->Debug messages` for
encodings Geany tried.  SO it should be pretty obvious if that

Binaries often contain NULs (0 value bytes) which is why they won't
open, its not anti-binary per say.
