[Geany-devel] Geany-Plugins: DATADIR -> GEANYPLUGINS_DATADIR

Not to be a bother, but how will this effect windows/portablization?  
The current method of portablization for the windows package uses the -c 
"DATALOCATION" switch.  Will the plugins still use this specified 
directory or will they be using another directory?  I see this affecting 
a local windows installation in that if a user uses the switch to test 
something, either all plugins will be enabled, or have the same settings 
as before.

Thanks for your time on this.
