My comments:
Changing 'Foo Bar:' to 'Foo bar:' in labels is good.
Increasing horizontal separation between radio buttons - not sure, but
perhaps more usable.
Unaligning entry fields seems bad.
Removing filetype from dialog title (even though each dialog has
different fields) seems bad.
Increasing vertical separations seems bad (out of keeping with Geany

I didn't look at the code BTW, only the screenshots. Also, if there are
Gnome HIG reasons to support you, fair enough, but consistency with
Geany is probably most important.
