Maybe we could drop almost all the pre-0.14 deprecated stuff. The more
recent deprecated macros I added to make porting easier. But we should
be clear why if we do this - e.g. do the macros cause name conflicts for
plugin authors often?

Anyone else have opinions on this?

One reason why I haven't dropped the old function macros yet is because
sometime I can imagine having an auto-generated wrapper library for the
geany_functions function pointers, so plugins can just write the
function name like in the core. Not sure how difficult it would be to
auto-generate yet.
