"Open selected file" should ask to create a file if it doesn't exist

Bug #523865 reported by Alexey Kotlyarov on 2010-02-18

Bug Description

Binary package hint: geany

If I press Ctrl-Shift-O to open the file under cursor, but it doesn't exist, all I get is a status line of "Cannot open file: no such file or directory". It would be useful to prompt: "The file doesn't exist, do you want to create it?". If I answer yes, a new, empty, unsaved file should be opened, and when I save it, I don't have to enter the name.
