But then they aren't using the filetype features anyway :-)

Funny, I first came across Geany because an XFCE based distro (zen)
installed it by default.  If a distro wanted to use Geany as its
default editor and wanted everything GUI configurable then I'm sure we
would happily accept patches they push upstream.

There was some work done on a general config GUI but I'm not sure
where it got to, and if it covers filetypes files.
