In the re-write I mentioned in previous message, I ended up just 
hijacking each of the Scintilla widgets by removing them from their 
parent container, and placing into a new horizontal box along with the 
little mini zoomed out Scintilla and putting that back in place of the 
previous Scintilla. It's definitively not an optimal solution and likely 
to break with other plugins doing the same nonsense, but it works[0].

[0]: Unless you put the new Scintilla on the left, then Geany finds that 
as its own and all hell breaks loose (will apply patch to Geany soon to 
fix it).
