+1 :)

> GeanyDoc        Documentation?[1]    doc or geanydoc
> GeanyExtrasel        Extra Selections    extrasel
> Geanygdb        GNU Debugger[2]        gdb
> GeanyGenDoc        Documentation Generator    gendoc
> GeanyInsertNum        Insert Numbers[3]    insertnum
> GeanyLatex        LaTeX (Addons)        latex
> GeanyLipsum        Lorem Ipsum Generator    lipsum
> GeanyLua        Lua Plugins        lua

I'd probably better go "Lua Scripts", but that's no big deal anyway.

> GeanyMacro        Macro Recorder        macro
> GeanyNumberedBookmarks    Numbered Bookmarks    numberedbookmarks
> GeanyPg            Privacy Guard        pg or gpg

I'd better see something less technical, like "Encryption & Signing" or
something.  But again, it's just a suggestion.

> GeanyPrj        Project Manager?[4]    prj or project
> GeanySendMail        Send Mail        sendmail
> GeanyVC            Version Control        vc or vcs
> --[coming soon]---------------------------------------------------
> GeanyMultiTerm        Multi-Tabbed Terminal    multiterm
> GeanyPy            Python Plugins        python
> GeanyZencoding        Zen Coding        zencoding

If "Zencoding" is a brand/tool name, I think it's better to not insert a
space but keep the "official" typing.
