Seems like a reasonable option. We have some very specific focuses for
the current release, but if someone wanted to work on this and submit
as a patch, I'd be for getting it in.

That's something I've wrestled with for a while, and have avoided
doing until we have a solid plan for it.
Something that's frequently requested is to be able to expand in
smaller increments, which I think reduces the need for the collapse.
For example, expand by 5 lines, 10 lines, 20, or to the nearest
function/class (as indicated by the header, in 1.5). I spent some time
on this recently and there are some issues with doing it right. Maybe
it'll find its way into 1.6, but no promises yet.
