Actually I already did the very same thing :-) - I just used different
name than messages_dir, but messages_dir is better than the name I
used so I'll rename it. I've also modified gproject to extend the
current project functionality rather than replacing it and made
several more changes that fix/improve functionality of geany. I'm just
not sure how to send the patches - many of them change something in
project.c so they depend on each other. Do you prefer to send them to
the mailing list (but then you have to apply them in the right order)
or is it enough  if I publish them in the form of public git
repository (easier for me and easier for you too I believe).
