Great work! That's a thing I'm really missing for Geany.

I'm digging in a bit. The dialog looks good already, but I think it 
lacks a important field: Working directory for the command.

It should be obvious, that for many projects, the source files are 
structured, so that having the working dir default to the dir where the 
source file is located doesn't work. And the base directory of a project 
also doesn't always work.

I'm looking at the code in the hope I can add it. It's a bit hard for me 
to read the code, it lacks comments and structure here and there, but I 
hope I'll find my way.
