Your session management feature sounds great, lets each instance of Geany
set the config it wants, but I'm just trying to understand how it works with
the rest of Geany and when I change what instances are running.

I'm not really fond of last wins, though it is common on Unix.

Oh yes how does your patch work if the X sm libs are not available (eg
Windows), can we set a symbol to compile without it?
