[Geany-Devel] Any votes for a "Project-Tree" plugin?

Sorry to follow up (late) to your first email.

Regarding functionality, I've looked at geanyprj and gproject, and neither
do what I'm thinking exactly :

gproject : The files are viewed in a nice tree, however that tree reflects
the disk layout, rather than functional groups.  And attempting to pull in
just a few files would result in an ultra-ugly 'filter'.

geanyprj : (With autofill files off) Looks promising, except that list of
user-chosen files is just linear.  Perhaps this would be the easier one to
pop a tree-view into, and still have it loading existing project files in a
compatible way

djynn : This looks very promising, however, the author made a breaking
change in the source tree last year, and (even though I've now got a
version that compiles cleanly) there are some seg-faulting issues that make
it too difficult to put through its paces enough to see.  It also appears
to be pretty unwelcoming code-wise.

So:  As it stands, enhancing geanyprj seems like it could be decent
approach.  Or forking it, since it's overview makes it sound as if its
purpose is to dip into lots of projects/codebases, rather than enable good
organization of a single project (and context changes, if opened in a
different base directory)

Hope this makes sense

PS:  But doing this in Python is a lot more appealing than C...  But I can
see the packaging issues may outweigh the convenience.
