Nice work! We usually do pull requests on Github these days since it's 
harder to get lost and easier to see the individual changes than one big 
patch. Would it be possible to open a pull request on Github for this?

If the language is reasonably popular, it seems likely nobody would 
object to including it into core.

One thing with Geany is that the project has a policy of upstreaming 
changes to the libraries/other projects it uses, so new Ctags parsers 
and Scintilla lexers get merged upstream and then get pulled back down 
into Geany. This makes sure we don't hoard contributions as well as 
facilitates synchronizing the code between projects.
