You can write a plugin that connects to Geany "key-press-event"; you
can send anything to Scintilla using scintilla_send_message() and the
other sci wrappers - see GeanyExtraSel for example of both.

That seems enough to try implementing indentation via virtual space.
Unless the plugin does really nasty hacks, or slows Geany
significantly, it's likely to be accepted, or at least mentioned as
link in geany.org's "Other Plugins".
