Yes, I think all typedefs that are used in the plugin API could have
the Geany prefix - this might also make it easier to know whether
something is in the API or not.

There are 2 other types that I can split up:
* GeanyFunctions could be moved out of GeanyData so we can add struct
pointers without breaking the ABI
* GeanyWidgets could be moved out of GeanyApp so we can add any
application-related settings whilst keeping the main widgets grouped

For the first one I can update the plugin macros so probably plugins
won't fail to compile. For the second, plugins will have to be updated
as probably every one uses app->window.
