This is at least not totally true if I trust strace (no IO during these
updates, in facts I had already checked this when I initially wrote the
in-memory stuff). At least without geanyprj.

Unfortunately, this change broke calltips (see today's Nick's mail and
my answer). I then reverted this, and we have to find a better fix. I'll
try to track this further, though I can't promise anything in the next
days, nor I know GeanyPRJ, so if anybody beat me in time, it'd be great :D
