There isn't (or rather shouldn't be) a 1:1 correspondence between a 
GeanyDocument and the view that's showing it. Consider say a split view 
where the same document is shown in multiple views, or in two windows or 
whatever. But you're right, with the way the code is currently, you 
could just wrap the Scintilla data list, it's just not very future-proof 
(at least this was my thinking).
