This concerns all plugin developers. @Matthew, can you public the
prototype or it's short description on the mailing list, or on another
shared resource?..

Sounds nice. But for some reason, both Scintilla and Geany use fixed
resources, independent of file type. Folding for text files, anyone?..

A per-document allocation, no matter how implemented, also introduces
per-document resource exhaustion errors. So we should at least have a
policy how such error messages are displayed - they must be both
noticable and not too annoying.
