That's too bad really, because turning off the sidebar, message window 
and toolbar, the interface is strikingly similar to a basic text editor 
(with tons of power under the hood..err, bonnet).  Geany blows Gedit out 
of the water in terms of speed and Mousepad in terms of functionality, 
so I think there is a "market" to use Geany as a general purpose text 
editor like those.

I'm still curious why XFCE isn't using Geany as the default text editor 
since it's fast and light like XFCE and quite frankly Mousepad 
completely sucks.
