Hello fellow org-mode users,

Using org-mode has made some things for me intolerable. I watched Carsten Dominik's talk at google where he articulated his desire for a simple interface for folding and unfolding. I became very unhappy with the hideshow.el interface for hiding and showing code. I don't know how anyone can bother to use these key bindings.

;; hs-hide-block C-c @ C-h or C-c S-2 C-h (C-c C-2 C-h would be an improvement)
;;   hs-show-block       C-c @ C-s     or C-c S-2 C-h

Wow, these would have made good examples for my talk.  Disastrous keys,
invalidating the entire point of folding.

I endeavored to make hideshow.el work more like org-mode and created my extension hideshow-org.el. Now TAB hides and shows code blocks when no indentation is necessary, but indents otherwise. So for those of you who work a lot on code, I encourage you to give it a try. The code and a little screencast that shows it in action is available here:


This looks like a huge improvement.  Congratulations, maybe you should
talk to Thien-Thi and Dan, if they are interested to incorporate this
into hideshow as an option.

Thanks again for org-mode. It's fundamentally changed the way I relate with emacs.
