Those facilities already exist, whether you limit yourself to just
`outline-minor-mode' and its hands-on commands or additionally use
something like `bicycle' (there have been similar approaches).

If as a side-effect of this conversation you have learned about some
facilities, then that is a side-effect, but that's not what wasn't
really my goal.  (I begin with an introduction to how all this works,
but that really was to make sure that all who voice an opinion on my
proposal have a common understanding of what we are talking about.

What I would like to talk about is my proposal, which is: lets make the
"major code sections" siblings, not children, of the "Code:" section.
