Warn the users that the default theme has been changed, and they need 
gtk-theme-name = "Raleigh" in etc/gtkrc to get the previous behavior 
(unless they already have set a theme, in which case there will be no 
difference). Using .gtkrc-2.0 in their home path will also work, for the 
people who prefer/need to run Win~1 as a regular user.

That would be nice, I have seen editors under Win~1 providing bold as an 
option for the active tab. However, I don't know a way to address the 
editor notebook specifically under gtk+ 2, without affecting the sidebar 
(and any other notebooks at the same hierarchy level). Setting the 
editor notebook widget name to "GeanyEditorNotebook" does the trick, but 
breaks compatibility: the current

widget "GeanyMainWindow.GtkVBox.GtkVPaned.GtkHPaned.GtkNotebook*"

addressing does not match GeanyEditorNotebook any more.

So, instead of setting the widget name in Geany, it may be better to 
write a small plugin that ui_lookups for specified widget id-s, and sets 
their widget names. That'll make every single geany.glade widget 
addressable, and let the user decide on what (s)he wants.
