The signal name change also bumped the API and ABI (probably
correctly? plugins using the old signal won't work, but just
re-compiling them won't fix it). An ABI change means that all plugins
need to be re-compiled, so when approaching 1.22 release we should
liase with Frank to try to get as near a simultaneous release of
geany-plugins as possible so binary users are not left in the lurch
without plugins for long.

Agree, I wasn't meaning to suggest changing the comment.

Sounds like we are approaching a plan.
