I pushed a "document-messages" branch to the Geany repository. See the other mailing list discussion[1] about this for background info.

I think I also left enabled the GIO file monitoring code someone had previously written. It works extremely well with document messages, but it can also be disabled easily using the preprocessor macro at the top of document.c.

There's definitively some user-interface discussions that need to take place to fine-tune the handling of certain types of document messages, but the foundation is there now anyway.

  - enable merging types of messages together, ex:
      - Don't stack changed-delete-changed messages
          - merge them together somehow
  - should the messages scroll in a stack or just a
    hard-limit to show only X messages at once?
  - probably lots of other stuff?

Any feedback and/or commits/patches/pull requests are most welcome.
