The spawning rewrite [1] [2] minimizes the windows of all tools started
by Geany, but is probably not appliable at the moment, due to some
changes in the #include-s of all source files.

With the current Geany, which runs the windows programs via cmd, for
various reasons related to spawning under Windows (maybe even double
cmd, since it runs it via system), you can't do that.
