I agree that there should be an option in preferences. On the other
hand, I understand that with how the geany project works it doesn't
know what files belong to the project - the subtree starting from
base_path may be a subset of the project and you have no way to tell
whether an open file outside the tree belongs to the project or not.
For gproject it's clear what files are included in the project (all
files satisfying the given pattern inside a certain directory) so it
makes more sense to do it by default there.
