On thinking about it some more, a repository is not very user friendly
for getting just a few files from, and a user would usually only want
those for a single language.  Its either get all by cloning the repo
or a single file at a time from github.

So yeah a plugin that grabs all the files in a directory and applies
the patches locally would be a good thing.

Thomas and Matthew seem to be converging on getting upstream Geanypy
adapted to the new plugin architecture, hopefully it will be added to
Geany-Plugins by 1.27 and then this could be a first use.  Running Git
from Python will be much easier than from C :)
