[Geany-Devel] [FT-plugins] Vala for prototyping

Hi All,

With respect to the efforts described in PR #1195[0] is anyone opposed 
to using Vala as a GObject code generator?

I propose we use Vala as a way to generate GObject boilerplate while we 
hammer out the design of FT-plugins, and later once the design is more 
concrete, that we port the GObjects generated by valac to their 
hand-written C equivalents (after they won't be changed as much).

It amounts to a few lines of code in `configure.ac` and `src/Makefile.am`.

Is OK?

P.S. This is only for the proposed 'ft-plugins' branch, not in 
master/release code.
