Yes, I think it's alright but the more eyes look at it, the better
chance someone notices something wrong.

Just for fun I tried to checkout and compile some very old versions of
Geany. Until commit 3f0512 (post 0.8 commit) everything compiles and
runs fine. For earlier versions you have to apply the patch from this
commit - after that you can run even the very first import to the
repository. And even with this old version you can say "yes, this is
Geany". Quite amazing that everything runs despite all the compiler
and library changes during the years.
