It probably doesn't, but in my application it provides a very simple interface to fold up a long 
routine, and as I only have one level and one type of fold it does the job.

The way I've done it is less than optimal, but it provides the user interface that I need.

I don't use any kind of markup info, so I've not come across this issue.

In my application it works fine as I only have one type of fold and they can't be nested :)
Always happy to try and extend it in a way that works for everybody though.

Thanks for the feedback :)

Food for thought in any case.
