If you can communicate with the process yes, you could write a plugin
doing so more dynamically than a build command.  If the process can work
with pipes even better.
That's a Mere Matter of Programming, but it should not be *too* hard to
do (Geany even has some supposedly handy API for communicating with a
subprocess, taking care of the most obvious issues it implicates).

Well, Vala requires a description of the C API too, but yes it can work.
 There is a manually generated VAPI file, but Thomas' work also generate
a VAPI file automatically.  That could probably be used.

It's a plugin for Geany that adds support for extra plugins (it's
actually a proxy for other plugins in other languages).  I don't know
when he'll consider it stable, but he certainly can answer.  I think he
considers it beta or close to that -- i.e. working, but would require
wider testing.
