This would be a great time to start my Lua adventure! It's been on my todo
list for quite a while now...

Unfortunately, I can't get geanylua to compile yet... (both Geany and
Geanylua from svn) It also seems that Geanylua doesn't obey --prefix=/usr
as it wants to install in /home/harold/.geany/plugins.

The error:
$ make install
/bin/bash: /home/harold/.geany/plugins: No such file or directory
make: *** [install-plugin] Error 127

Of cource I know how to solve that!
$ mkdir /home/harold/.geany/plugins

$ make install
/bin/bash: /home/harold/.geany/plugins: is a directory
make: *** [install-plugin] Error 126

Hmmm... This is also the reason I want to go Lua instead of
C/Autotools/etc... Too darn complicated for my little brain.
