OK, I'll leave it. Do you have any preference for any new files I
might add in future: newfile.h new-file.h new_file.h? I guess the rule
could be to use the first one unless the name is confusing, like
uiutils would be - in those cases, use underscores. Probably I'll
rename the plugin-symbols.c file as this seems to be the exception,
as tm_source_file.h uses underscores.

OK, no problem.
