Invisible text is only a tiny part of the solution.

Right now I don't have time to work on it, but it would be wonderful to
see some work starting on it. I believe the parser already basically
handles the code folding marks for us, so we just have to figure out how
to draw it, and how to properly handle it.

One thing to keep in mind, is that GtkTextView has 4 bordering windows
that you can customize, but it is *highly* possible that GtkSourceView
takes the left one already and wont allow additions. Someone will have
to look into it.
