"Geany" in the plugin names is part of the name and should be properly
capitalised as it's also done with the other plugins. I think it would
be even more inconsistent and confusing if some plugins would be
captilised properly (like the internal and some other plugins) and your
plugins would break this rule. This would make Dominic's efforts
