      I don't like all that clutter in the fold line, either, but I do
      like to see the number of lines in the fold, so I modified the
      appearance of the fold line with this in my ~/.vimrc.

      set foldtext=MyFoldText()

      " MyFoldText()
      " This is intended to be the same as the default foldtext()
      " function, but without the text of the first line of the fold.
      " See f_foldtext() in eval.c to see how the string is built.
      function! MyFoldText()
      let n = v:foldend - v:foldstart + 1
      let i = indent(v:foldstart)
      let istr = ''
      while i > 0
      let istr = istr . ' '
      let i = i - 1
      return istr . "+-" . v:folddashes . " " . n . " lines "

      You could do something similar to get the appearance you want. I
      wrote it before the repeat() function was available, so it could
      probably be rewritten with five fewer lines today. See
