Multi window editing is the "right" way to do it, but...

Unfortunately scintilla doesn't have a model view paradigm so you have
to replay all changes if the same file is visible in two windows.
Recent scintilla discussions were not encouraging on the effort

Also most of Geany isn't reentrant (eg much of it depends on a global
view of current document, project, etc) so there will need to be
changes to fix that and to support multiple projects.

 But of course don't let that stop you :)
