I saw the next point, but couldn't this have been done in the other
debugger plugin?  It looks a little bit like a duplicate :)

Anyway, I had some spare time so I decided to test your plugin.
Unfortunately, I couldn't build it :(


$ make
gcc -O2 -Wall -W '-DLOCALEDIR="/tmp"' '-DGETTEXT_PACKAGE="package"' -c
break.c -fPIC `pkg-config --cflags geany`
gcc -O2 -Wall -W '-DLOCALEDIR="/tmp"' '-DGETTEXT_PACKAGE="package"' -c
conterm.c -fPIC `pkg-config --cflags geany`
conterm.c:42:21: fatal error: vte/vte.h: Aucun fichier ou dossier de ce type
compilation terminated.
make: *** [conterm.o] Erreur 1

OK, that's problematic but easy to solve.  I modified the Makefile as
follows to fix this:

$ git diff
diff --git a/Makefile b/Makefile
index f817f6f..3e62e63 100644
--- a/Makefile
+++ b/Makefile

 check: main.o scope.so
        gcc main.o scope.so

But now I get:

$ make
gcc -O2 -Wall -W '-DLOCALEDIR="/tmp"' '-DGETTEXT_PACKAGE="package"' -c
break.c -fPIC `pkg-config --cflags geany vte`
gcc -O2 -Wall -W '-DLOCALEDIR="/tmp"' '-DGETTEXT_PACKAGE="package"' -c

conterm.c: In function ‘conterm_init’:
conterm.c:439:37: error: ‘program_pty_master’ undeclared (first use in
this function)
conterm.c:439:37: note: each undeclared identifier is reported only once
for each function it appears in
make: *** [conterm.o] Erreur 1

and I can't find anywhere this program_pty_master, and the Web doesn't
seem to know about it either.  Ah and yes, I have
-Werror-implicit-function-declaration enabled, but everything should
build with it -- and it removing it wouldn't make that function appear
magically I think :)

Also, in scope.c:debug_menu_keys[] you should use the `N_()` macro to
mark the second column as translatable, simply adding a comment is not
enough for translation extractor to find them.
