Geany (in my peas* branches on Github) and for the Python demo plugin
(code not pushed to GH yet) I managed to get GObject-Introspection to
scan Geany's source code/headers. Most of the work involved just
"including what you use" and/or using defined names like `struct
GeanyDocument` instead of `GeanyDocument` because the latter is defined
off in some unrelated header. Once GI can grok one header at a time (ie.
without pre-processing all the source together like C compiler does), it
seems to pickup lots of the API (can't vouch for if or how well the
bindings actually works yet).

Very cool that you managed to get GI work (mostly). It'll help us
regardless of libpeas, right?
I have a question regarding libpeas. There doesn't seem to be a public
(nor documented) API to add loaders. From what I can see the current
language support of libpeas is quite poor (only python and seed (that's
JS isnt it?)). Also, they don't seem to very committed to maintaining
I think we want to maintain the ability to add loaders on our own,
without depending on a 3rd party project. Especially for potentially
creating a compat-loader for our existing plugins. It doesn't seem
libpeas readily supports this. Unless I'm missing something.
