great idea!
Will be included in the next installer, it's just 79kB.
Luckily, and if I don't miss anything, we don't need to set any paths
because the default path for grep is just "grep" and when grep.exe is in
the bin/ directory next to Geany.exe, it should work out of the box.

True. I guess we can improve the error message but maybe better after
1.25 to not bother the translators too much by breaking the string
freeze :).
