`git commit -a` isn't a problem since it commits all changes, but only
to tracked files. `git add .` OTOH may be a problem, but as it is
generally run at the very beginning of a project, the Geany project file
is likely not to exist yet I think.

Keeping the .geany project file in the project tree is at least what I
personally do, and without any harm.

I definitely like the feature! (I even though to implement it a while
ago, but I wasn't probably bothered enough to actually do it...)
