[Geany-devel] editing big files can be too slow with tag reparsing

Whilst opening doc/geany.html I found it takes >5s on my machine to 
load. It's a big document though, still perhaps the HTML tag parser 
performance could be improved.

But now we have tag reparsing, editing geany.html becomes painful. I 
know we can disable reparsing, but what else could we do to improve the 
situation? It's not urgent to solve this problem, unless we want to make 
reparsing off by default.
