[Geany-devel] various prefs - statusbar_template

There is a small problem with the various/hidden preferences editor,
namely with the statusbar_template default value. The options are:

1. Display/edit an empty default value. Requires no changes in Geany,
but is not very convenient: you must read the documentation and find
the default for your language, probably in the .po files. Well you must
do that currently for if editing the [empty] value in geany.conf.

2. Display/edit the real default value. Requires minimal changes,
currently implemented in the various editor patch, but that value will
be saved in geany.conf, even without being edited. So if the LANG is
changed, the old value will still be used, and you'll have to open Edit
-> Preferences -> Various, right-click statusbar_template and choose
Reset. Hopefully the LANG changes will be rare.

3. Display/edit the real default value, but save it as empty if it
matches the default. Convinient, but requires several hacks, especially
if the editor will support right-click and Reset to default.

RFC. I'm against option 3.
