We can copy the forward-looking gtkcompat into a geany-plugins own
/include directory, so building the latest plugins will require...
the latest plugins. :) All it needs is a small change in autotools/waf
for the new include directory. And it doesn't matter whether gtkcompat
gets included from geany/include or plugins/include.

I actually tried gtk+3. Not only is it slow - on a machine that can run
a decent 3D game, no less - but Scintilla flickers [YMMV]. Seems that
I'll have to wait for gtk+ 3.24. :) Or a new video driver. Or Wayland.
