Enrico or Nick may correct me but I think such a plugin would need deep
access to Scintilla's functions and other stuff. Since I don't know the
syntax of the mentioned vim files very well, wouldn't it be possible to
just write a small tool (maybe a sh script) which is converting the
file to Geany's format here and provide it in 'normal' way to Geany?
