We would have a function to create a plugin-like object that the C
plugin could call, but Geany would still need the lookup function to
resolve symbols.

One problem with this approach is that python plugins would only be
available after the PythonPlugins C plugin was loaded. IMO this might
be OK, or we could make Geany always load it if present.
