Vala is very recent, so it's unlikely they would make it generate
deprecated GObject code.

Anyway it was just an idea, as I'm sure a geanyobject.vala file would
be about 10 lines and very elegant too. But maybe it's not suitable for
Geany, not sure yet.

BTW, I'm sure the geanyobject.[hc] generated by Vala would be no better
than existing code or code from the patch (in fact probably worse), but
we wouldn't have to read it so who cares.
