Should work fine. Make a custom filetype as shown in the Geany manual, 
and then in the filetype_extensions.conf file, use `todo.txt` instead of 
the pattern `*.txt`. I believe Makefiles already do this.

I believe there is a plugin that highlights TODO and FIXME and such. 
Otherwise you could do it by writing your own plugin. I'm not aware of a 
way to do it without writing a plugin.
