Should I just do a patch against all the filetypes.* at once?  The only 
part of those files I changed is the [styling] sections.  But I'm using 
a Python script to substitute in the named styles in them so, for 
example, I only maintain one set of named styles for the CPP lexer and 
all filetypes.* which use the CPP lexer get those styles inserted with 
the Python script.  It would be good to move all of the mappings and 
Python script into Geany's scripts directory maybe?

I'm willing to take a look at this when I get time, if no one else wants 
to.  I can file bug reports with patches on sourceforge if that's the 
best way.
