Now, supported in the latest svn. Folded code stays folded.

However as long as a fold is in a comment (or otherwise preserved where 
it would have previously been unfolded), it will not be saved to your 
That means:
- if you restart the IDE, while you have an unfinished "(*" comment => 
you lose the folds inside that comment.
- Once you finished the comment, all folds after the "*)" will be normal 
again, and be preserved.
