Nope, sorry.
It was already a lot of work to get the majority of the plugins working
and all the related work with changing from Waf to Autotools on MSYS2.
I skipped the GeanyPy part.

Maybe you or Thomas or someone else might be willing to work on that for
1.28 but I'm afraid for 1.27 it's too late.
