Nice, thanks for working on this. I think it will be useful in my
working with Geany. The plug-in configures, builds and loads fine in
Geany 0.20 (svn >= r5478), but I cannot find a way to actually move
vte to sidebar.

I cannot find this pref (although it should probably be located in
'Edit > Plugins Prefs' dialogue). Any suggestions?
