No, it's just a wishlist item.

It's a bit complicated. Geany doesn't have a shared library for plugins
to link against, instead, Geany sets symbols like geany_functions in
each plugin before initialization. Plugins use generated macros to call
Geany functions.


So I'm not sure how a python plugin could work, but I'm no expert ;-)
