I have a great solution to break this deadlock. How about putting the plugin
into the geany-plugins combined project, and allowing us to collaboratively
maintain both the waf and autotools build systems?

As it is currently, Enrico does most of the work maintaining the waf build
system, and I, autotools.

Putting your plugin into the combined geany-plugins project will also mean that
your plugin will then have synchronized releases with Geany, and get packaged
into major distributions easier as well. A win all round, don't you think? :-)

Kind regards,
