Hi Frank,

if it should cause problems, of course it can wait, it was just a suggestion...

...on the other hand I've just tried to make the renaming from 0.21 to
1.21 and it isn't too hard to do and doesn't seem to be very intrusive
- see the attached patches both for Geany and geany-plugins. The only
missing things are:

1. The documentation should be regenerated
2. Version should be updated in *.po files (I didn't do it because
you'll be receiving po files from translators with version 0.21 now
and it will be easiest to update all of them at once before the
3. The version number change should be mentioned in ChangeLog/NEWS
