[Geany] Ann: Move from GTK to Qt, new project name Qeany

Hi all,

after 4 years of using GTK as the GUI toolkit for Geany, I think it's
to switch to a modern and user-friendly GUI toolkit, Qt 4.

Probably the only way to continously get new users and be able to 
improve the editor more, is to use Qt 4.

Since this means a quite big change in everything, the project will be
renamed into Qeany.

All GTK related code will be removed soon and replaced by newer, 
better Qt 4 code.

This way we can get rid off this archaic and legacy toolkit.

There is already a new web site: www.qeany.org with
more information.

Hope you'll like the changes.
