quite some time. It is true that it doesn't make the folds disappear
completely; rather, each outer closed fold is replaced by one line. That
wouldn't work for inline folding; but maybe it could use the 'foldcolumn' or
something to draw attention to the fact that something has been hidden.
And BTW, the Hidden highlight group (guibg=bg guifg=bg) also "suppresses"
whatever uses it, yet IIUC it is used a lot in helpfiles. I'm not sure about
netrw, but the older Explorer plugin also used it to hide its sort key.
