We talked about this earlier on IRC and the goal of geany-plugins to
have one single plugin bucket where plugins are not splitted up. Right
now its already possible to build single plugins e.g. by using --enable
flag on waf.

Dependencies? I agree.
I think introducing changes to core about GObject etc will make such
things easier. Currently its far away.

I agree ;)
