Geany Dev Team:

I may have missed something when looking through the documentation, but 
there is something I do not understand. Why do some filenames under 
./data/ use the format "filetypes.LANG" while others use the format 
"filetypes.LANG.conf" (such as "filetypes.Cython.conf")? In the future, 
when I add new filetypes, how can I know which filename format to use? 
That is, if I add support for Squirrel (C-like language), would I name 
it "filetypes.squirrel" or "filetypes.Squirrel.conf"?
