Well, you will have to address the speed of the project plugin to its
developer, but if it has extra functionality I guess that could be part of
why its slower.  I think it is scanning all the files in the project,
finding the tags and adding them all to the tagmanager as if the files are
open.  That could be part of the delay, but the maintainer would know.

I checked with the expert on Geany's tags capability, and sadly none of the
tags system knows the filenames, so it can't do goto definition.

> $ time geany -g /tmp/drupal7.php.tags $(find . -type f -name '*.php'
> -o -name '*.module' -o -name '*.inc' -o -name '*.install' -o -name
> '*.engine')
> real 0m6.322s
> user 0m6.228s
> sys 0m0.088s

How long does it take to load the tags?
