I just added the MultiTerm plugin to Geany-Plugins master branch. 
Please let me know ASAP if it causes you any issues.

It still needs to be added to the Waf build system and there's lots of 
work to do on everything else.

Note: there's some build warnings even without make check that are 
caused by the C code that is generated by valac.  There's not much I can 
do about it, the fixes will come with newer valac versions, I'm sure.
