Long story short, why don't you write a plugin that connects to
"document-close", and focuses your favorite widget when the last
document is closed? That'll certainly be easier and faster than
adding a function to the plugin API and convincing all plugin
developers to call it, for a reason which may not sound entirely
convincing to them.

Being a plugin, you can extend it as you see fit - for example
by keeping history of the focused widgets and going back to the
last one that still exists, going back on each document close etc.

Finally, a plugin that does something sensible, causes no crashes
and avoids dirty hacks, may well be accepted in geany-plugins.
