[Geany-Devel] Order of plugin signal connections

Hi Lex,

Further to my last message, which proposed: a new signal, say "pre-key-press-event", then, in Geany start-up (before any plugin loading) connect to "key-press-event".  In the handler for "key-press-event", Geany just emits "pre-key-press-event" with the same event data as was passed to it.  Thus, any plugin that needs to be assured of priority (and promises not to suppress the signal handling) will get first look-in.

OK, I've tried it out, and it works very well.  It doesn't look, at least to me, as a non-Geany-expert, that it would cause any problems.  So, what's the best way to bring it to the attention of the Geany devs?  Do they perhaps read this list?   ;)   Or should I just go ahead and submit a pull request?
