Actually, AFAIK GtkTextBuffer has support for hidden text regions in
GTK 2.8 (the "invisible" property on text tags), so it could be done
right now.  However, there would still be quite a lot of work on top
of this to track hidden regions and draw the region indicators. As far
as I am aware, no-one is working on it at the moment.

Code completion for ASPX and HTML files is something I would love to
get done, but I'm concentrating on getting the
build/CodeBehind/run/deploy stuff finished first.

Yes, our most-requested feature :) David Srbecký is working on it for
the Summer of Code.
