[Geany-Devel] Accessing argv from plugins

I want to write a plugin that requires some command line options passed 
to it (through geany). Is there a way to make it so Geany will accept 
arbitrary arguments and then I can pick them out of /proc/<PID>/cmdline 
or something[1]? I tried but Geany currently errors out if it sees an 
option it does not recognize itself.

Assuming this is not possible currently, is there any sane way to pass 
arguments to plugins, maybe something like how you can pass `-Wl` to GCC 
to pass-through linker args or `-X` to valac to pass-through compiler args?
