There is a difference. I believe Geany can still run when unloadable plugins
live in its plugin directory, meaning that if you uninstall libvte9, all that
happens would be that the core VTE plugin becomes un-loadable.

And like I mentioned in my previous post, having this functionality (and
dependency) as a separate file allows distributions to move it into a separate
package of its own when needed.

Kind regards,
