BTW, Structure fields in the API are there to avoid having to add
setter/getter functions.

I still think that Geany's project support should not be overridden by
plugins, only augmented. E.g. maybe a plugin could disable session
management, but Geany still decides when to open and close a project.

Otherwise it's a mess e.g. with project indentation settings.
