If you don't use one of the existing C plugins as a base, then don't
let the questions over Python plugins put you off using it, you don't
need to care until (if) you are ready to release it to the
geany-plugins.  Hopefully we will have gotten our ducks in a row by by
that time :)

Also consider you could write plugins in Cython, which to my mind
allows the best of both worlds, C and Python, and (untested) Python3.
Or you can use C++ for plugins, or Vala.

So you now have too many choices :)
