I think you should formulate your specific vision for Geany, perhaps on 
the wiki or so. It doesn't help me if you list projects or books which I 
could possibly look at (which I'm not gonna do because it would take 
ages to grasp their model and consider advantages and disadvantages) 
because I don't know what's so horrible about status quo. As a result I 
lack motivation to evaluate alternatives.

Best regards.
