I think we should definitely drop Geany from all the names shown in the 
plugin manager, even for independently maintained plugins.

IIRC the PM name is 'Lua Scripting'. It doesn't really have a maintainer 
ATM but I am the named maintainer. Feel free to change 'GeanyLua' and/or 
the directory name - I would suggest 'luascript'. It doesn't allow true 
Lua plugins.
