Okay, I can add the return value now. But can we agree on ignoring the 
return value for now and work out what Geany should do best in a 
separate thread/changeset. I just don't like to mix this UI/UX change 
(which is an effort on its own because Geany obviously does not handle 
failing init() at all) with the new loader.

But with GError sounds a bit overkill to me, isn't gboolean or gint 
return code sufficient?

Best regards.
