The functionality is there but needs cleaning up.  The major thing is to 
the folding of headings from the folding of code structures.  Headings should be
at a higher hierarchical level than code folding.  People tend to add things but
when everything becomes somewhat convoluted and complicated, tho code is not
looked upon again with a more robust design.  This step is important because it
eases the way far further development.
