But does this work for Geany's core plugins? And it surely wouldn't
work for plugins with no translation setup (e.g. plugins just starting
to be developed).

I don't know much about gettext code, what happens after a plugin is
unloaded? It wouldn't be good if the translations remained in memory.
Is there a function to call to 'unload' them when a plugin is

(ATM it's not much of a problem because any plugins not enabled don't
have their translations loaded).
